2017 Savigny Les Lavieres 1er Cru                                     

parcel: 1er Cru Lavieres

“A distinctly earthy and layered nose exhibits soft spice elements on the pretty mix of both red and dark pinot fruit where additional nuance is present in the form of smoked game. There is good richness to the delicious, round and nicely vibrant flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the sappy and sneaky long if slightly warm finish. This is not a particularly dense wine but I like the texture and developing depth.

2017 Savigny Les Haut Jarrons 1er Cru                       

 parcel: 1er Cru Haut Jarrons 

“This took a long time to open up, indeed I elected to allow it more than an hour of air before looking at it carefully and even then the nose was closed. So I put it aside and tried again the next day and that was enough oxygen to do the trick as the dark berry fruit, spice, game and distinctly earth-inflected nose began to express itself. The serious and brooding flavors were also initially quite tight though with air they became a bit more supple on the lingering if ever-so-slightly warm finish. This is clearly built-to-age and while it won’t be necessary to wait the full ten years before it matures, I would suggest allowing it at least 5 to 7 years.”

2018 Savigny les Beaune blanc                                      

parcel’s: Connardis and Vermots

“Traces of smoke, citrus and reduction lead to round, delicious and attractively vibrant middle weight flavors that possess solid complexity and persistence on the appealingly dry and balanced finale. a very fine Pear, white Nectarine fruit, and a very pretty white floral quality. Slight creaminess, a fine balance of creamy white fruit and fresh minerality. This is really quite good for a Savigny blanc and in particular given this is a “simple” villages, I very much like the depth. ”

2018 Savigny Moutier Amet                                             

 parcel: Moutier Amet

(Moutier Amet abuts Les Narbantons). “Light ruby color. A relatively high-toned nose stops just short of being fruity with its combination of red currant, cherry, raspberry and a whiff of earth/humus character. The lighter weight (but not dilute) flavors possess good vibrancy and detail with a relatively suave mouth feel, all wrapped in an ever-so-mildly dry finish:

parcel: les Gollardes

“ Light ruby color. A cool and restrained aromatic assortment features notes of both red and dark currant, earth and a hint of humus. The supple, round and nicely vibrant flavors possess good punch that carries over to the reasonably rich finish where a subtle hint of dryness imparts a mildly clipped character to the slightly warm finish.”
