2008 BEAUNE, 1er Cru, Clos des Couchereaux, Louis Jadot. Burgundy
"Beaune vineyards are the most extensive of the Côte de Beaune, between Savigny to the North, and Pommard to the South. There are no Grands Crus vineyards in this commune, but there are 36 Premiers Crus. A great part of the Beaune vineyards are located on the slopes and therefore a majority of them are rated in Premier Cru and "Les Couchereaux" is one of them. This Premier Cru rouge has a south exposure and the soil is clay and chalk with some alluvial soil on the surface. The soil is deep, well drained and warms up quickly."
