From: Savigny-les-Beaune, Cote de Beaune, Cote d'Or, Burgundy, France
Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: The 2017 Savigny-lès-Beaune Vieilles Vignes is showing very well from bottle, bursting from the glass with an inviting bouquet of raspberries, spices and incense. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and succulent, with a generous core of fruit, melting tannins and juicy acids, this will offer a broad window of delicious drinking. -The Wine Advocate
The Guillemot family has worked Savigny-lès-Beaune vines for eight generations (!) and produces wines with classic Burgundian finesse and balance, all while leaving us a reminder of Savigny’s rustic character. But do not be fooled into thinking that this means they lack aging potential; the Guillemots are very proud of their old wines and thankfully have the foresight to set aside a good supply and follow their wines’ development over the years. A recent tasting at the domaine included a 1989 and 1975 Savigny Blanc, as well as the ‘90, ‘88, ‘85, ‘82, ‘76, ’72, and ‘64 Rouge. There was not a single tired bottle in the bunch. We challenge anyone to find a better deal on Burgundies that are built to last like these!
