2020 Domaine d'Ardhuy Savigny Blanc Clos des Godeaux
Domaine d'Ardhuy is a Burgundy house that quickly became one of the top 5 producers in the region. Very extensive choice of terroirs, and high quality from the base to the Cru's.
Gabriel Ardhuy helped with the 1947 harvest in Burgundy and met his future wife Eliane, daughter of a winegrower from Burgundy. They have seven daughters. The d'Ardhuy family has long owned the trading house Pierre André, headquartered at Château Corton-André. This will be sold in 2002, so that all attention can be paid to the own vineyards and the development of the own domain. The Ardhuy family owns more than 40 hectares of vineyards in magnificent plots and also owns a company in the Rhone. For both domains a subsidiary has been appointed to organize it. At the beginning of 2003, Carel Voorhuis, son of a lawyer from Maastricht who had previously bought a winery in the Jura, comes in as a 'régisseur'. And then things go fast: already in 2004, the Revue de Vins de France chose Ardhuy as number 3 of producers in the Côte de Beaune and as number 4 in the Côte de Nuits.
The grapes grow on young vines on a poor marl soil. This soil is very suitable for Chardonnay, which gives the wine freshness and minerality. The vineyards are located at an altitude of about 280 meters and are oriented to the south. The sunny location and cool nights provide a good balance between ripeness and freshness.
The Domaine d'Ardhuy Savigny Blanc Clos des Godeaux is expressive on the nose with aromas of white fruit, peach, acacia blossom and a light woody note. Fresh and juicy on the palate with soft acids and creamy notes of caramel, hazelnuts and a light smokiness. A Burgundy to enjoy young, already beautiful to drink, but can certainly age for a few more years.
