The Lebreuil estate, in family hands for several generations, owns 10.5 ha of vines in the villages of Savigny-Les Beaune and Aloxe-Corton, in regional appellation, village and 1er cru in red and white. In white as in red, the Domaine is looking for typical Burgundy wines with a respect for the terroir, the grape variety and the appellation. The wines are generally very fruity and very fine with soft tannins that will give the wines a good ageing. The Domaine Lebreuil works in "reasoned fight", that is to say that it intervenes on the vine only during an important disease attack, to avoid the systematic use of products. The cultivation of the vines is done in the purest Burgundian tradition with the use of modern equipment and techniques.
For the vinification, here too the techniques remain very traditional, the harvest is done by hand and the sorting is done in the vineyard. Vinification can vary according to the vintage and the quality of the harvest.
Terroir and breeding
Harvest sorted, destemmed and crushed. Vatting time of about 15 days. Cold maceration at the beginning with one pumping over per day to release the colour and also the first fruit aromas. Alcoholic fermentation, punching down. Aged on lees for 14 months.
Beautiful ruby colour, limpid. The nose, of a beautiful complexity, announces aromas of small red and black fruits (raspberry, blackberry and blackcurrant). The palate reveals great elegance, with a silky texture, aromas of red and black fruits and a light woody note. The tannins are elegant and well blended.
This excellent wine will be the ideal companion of grilled red meat, white meat and soft or bloomy cheese.
