Add to Cart$34In stock

Grown on some of the oldest vines in the domaine, this Premier Cru Pinot Noir has won numerous awards in France. It has a light and supple palate with a floral, fruity feel. “A wine of full of pleasure,” as Girard puts it.

  • Classic Savigny-les-Beaune—the nose suggestive of roses, cherries and then strawberries with metallic, mineral, and citrus notes in the background. Bright and approachable but with presence. Excellent structure—rich, silky, round, seductive cherry fruit on the mid-palate, vibrant acidity, and delicate but solid tannins. The long finish offers a delightful dance of strawberry fruit and lingering tannic grip. Delicious now, but worth cellaring through around 2019. An excellent example of its appellation and an excellent value.

    Food pairing: Beef Carpaccio, chicken with morels, duck or other fowl, rabbit, Epoisses,

  • The youthful nose suggests crushed flowers (roses), talc or wet clay, and red fruit along with something savory and gamey. Also hints of iron and stone. Bright cherry and raspberry flavors are nicely balanced by crisp acidity. Something suggestive of roses also on the palate. Good weight. A little fleshy. Overall, well-integrated flavors with some grippy tannins. Refreshingly fruity on a long finish. Approachable now, but likely to be even more attractive around 2016.

    Food pairing: Spaghetti and meatballs
