Beaune Vignes Franches 1er Cru 2013

Beaune Vignes Franches 1er Cru 2013

The glorious Hospices de Beaune continues to benefit from its endowments to help the local inhabitants.The parcel of “Vignes Franches” is to be found mid-slope. The clay soils are scattered with small pebbles which allows for easy drainage of water. In this Beaune "Vignes Franches" we find the same opulence as in neighbouring Pommard as well as an extrememly pleasant fruit-forwardness even when young. It is one of the best Premier Cru vineyards of Beaune, producing a wine that is persuasively elegant and graceful with a fragrant floral nose and yet well capable of ageing to perfection for a considerable period of time.
