2021 AOP Savigny-Lès-Beaune Rouge


Regular price $150 750ml Sale

From a 0.16ha plot called ‘Les Vermots’. The vines grow on clay and limestone and were planted in 1929. It’s a cooler climate with excellent drainage. 3 day cold soak and then 3-4 week whole bunch maceration. Aged in used barrels for 12 months, then left to settle in tank for 8 months. Not fined or filtered. Minimal SO2.

A huge contrast to the 2020, which was quite powerful and still needs time. This is open and fragrant straight off the bat. Red roses, cinnamon, salt, clove, star anise, fennel pollen. Behind that is cherry, but this is more about a beautiful spice perfume, A little chocolate too. Lithe, creamy, light, dreamy and full of life on the palate. A mix of choc, strawberry and raspberry fruit. Almost weightless compared to the dense 2020. Smooth and sensual, with a creamy texture that is deep but light. New layers unfold with hints of dehydrated blood orange and cherry skin. This is really special. Perfume is immense! Tannins are fully integrated already. What a wine!
