"This single-vineyard Savigny-lès- Beaune comes from the Estate vineyards of Maison Champy, which are farmed organically and biodynamically. Aux Fourches is a vineyard located on the right, just after the fork in the road that leads to Pernand-Vergelesses traveling from Beaune to the village of Savigny. It lies below the Premier Cru of Aux Fournaux and is a relatively warm, flat site with deeper soil, lots of clay. Yields from the old vines are quite low here, and the wine is fermented with wild yeast in open-topped vats, then aged in 1/3 new French Oak and bottled unfiltered. The wine has a very pretty floral nose, bright red fruit and lots of length. Lovely though it is, this is serious wine, with very good concentration and substantial tannins on the finish. It's drinkable now, particularly with decanting, but it will age very well in your cellar. (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy Buyer) "
