Colomé “Auténtico” is a tribute to the pioneers who planted the vineyards and opened the winery in 1831. Since then, the vineyards at Bodega Colomé have been grown with sustainable farming practices to achieve the “authentic” expression of the terroir. Higher altitudes offer more sun, less UV protection and produce a thicker skinned grape that delivers a more robust taste with fresh acidity to support it. We believe the natural expression of the soil is captured in these wines.
Savigny-lès-Beaune is a wine-growing village located along the northern border of Beaune. It is one of the most important villages of the Côte d'Or, with nearly 350 ha of production, 306 ha of which are Pinot Noir. The appellation is composed of 22 areas classified as Premiers Crus over 140 ha. The vineyard enjoys different exposures: southerly, south-easterly, easterly, and north-easterly, at altitudes between 220 and 360 m above sea level. The limestone soil is light, filled with stones and not very fertile.

Deep, bright ruby red color. It shows sweet red and black fruits, subtle oak and a great backbone of tannins. The red and black fruit aromas followed by an elegant grip over florality comes from the Cabernet Sauvignon. The other grapes blend in to add flavor and complexity. It has a fine, lifted finish with great ageing potential.
The bright yellow color suggests a nose with complex notes of yellow fleshed fruits, honey and gingerbread, as well as a buttery character. The palate is full, supple, balanced on refreshing and round notes, very long finish on mineral notes with an impressive balance. No feeling of alcool and can age well.
There are 8 blocks of Pinotage situated on various aspects of the large hill that comprises L'Avenir, allowing certain blocks to be isolated for specific vinification styles and premium wines. We selected Block 2 (1.2 hectare) as single vineyard selection for the Single Block Pinotage wine. It is also dry land vineyards. The Indian Ocean is less than 20km away, and gentle afternoon sea breezes drift over the farm and exert a cooling influence against the late afternoon Cape sun.
