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.
