ETA OCTOBER 2016
Superb definition ... Sweetly spiced, very modern and user-friendly. Very finely ground tannin - drinkable now, with food.
17 Points - Richard Hemming, jancisrobinson.com
This wine is made with 50% whole bunches, and unlike the Grands Liards below, shows very ethereal rose petal and sweet spice aromatics, and a pure, cool, very vibrant blue-fruited palate with super-fine tannins. It's very fresh and very enthralling. The 90pt score below is a bit mean I feel! Randall.
The wine shows lovely depth and complexity on the nose, offering up scents of currants, dark berries, a lovely base of minerality, gamebird and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with lovely grip and focus on the ripely tannic finish, good length and fine balance. This is still quite primary in personality and will need some time to blossom properly, but it is an outstanding Savigny villages in the making. 2020- 2045+.
