Domaine Lucien Jacob 2013 Savigny-Les-Beaune Rouge

The Savigny-lès-Beaune rouge comes from a large, south-facing vineyard area just to the south of the famous hill of Corton – an iconic landmark in the geological sense. The wines are somewhere in between Volnay and Beaune in style, perhaps a touch more rustic, but always reasonable value. It is bright and refreshing with crunchy redcurrant and berry fruit, intermixed with spice and minerals. A pretty, elegant Pinot rather than powerful to be drunk within 5-7 years.

Domaine Lucien Jacob is a French estate located in the village of Echeveronne in Burgundy. It has been in the Jacob family for generations, but underwent an aggressive expansion during the 1960’s when the estate’s namesake was in charge. Today, it is Lucien’s son Jean-Michel, who has run the estate since 1994.

The family’s original vineyard holdings are in the regions of Savigny-Les-Beaune and Pernand Vergelesses, but have recently acquired more vineyards in Burgundy’s Cotes du Beaune, including several of the region’s famed premier cru vineyards. The region of Burgundy known as the Cote d’Or, or the “Golden Slope,” is some of the most expensive agricultural property on the planet, and the Jacob family now owns 15 acres of its prime real estate. 

Jean-Michel has worked tirelessly to hone the family’s wines. He has reduced the yield of the vineyards, which has translated into more concentrated, structured wines. The wines have always been known for a pleasant fruitiness, but the wines of Domaine Lucien Jacob now couple attractive aromatics with depth and power.

The 2013 Lucien Jacob Savigny-Les-Beaune is a red wine made from the village of Savigny-Les-Beaune, and by law has to be made from 100 percent Pinot Noir. The wine is extremely silky. It has attractive aromas of red fruits – think red cherries and cranberries – with subtle hints of cedar and toast. The wine embodies elegance and a pleasant subtlety without being weak.

Pinot Noir is a homerun with braised meats, and would be great with this veal recipe – give it a go!
