Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    The combination of south facing slopes and clay soils contributes to a very glamourous wine in 2018. Instantly striking with its wild strawberry aromas, it has a generous volume and sweetly ripe tannins. A wine of charm rather than power, with rewarding length.

    Score: 90-92

    The 2018 Savigny-lès-Beaune Les Lavières comes from south-facing mid-slope vines on mainly limestone soils. It has a very attractive bouquet of raspberry and wild strawberry aromas, quite plump and generous, yet well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins and precise red berry fruit laden with minerals, leading to a slightly reserved but very persistent finish. This is a notch (or two) up from the Aux Fournaux at this stage. 2022 - 2036

    There is a bit of post-bottling reduction so if you're tempted to try a bottle in its youth, I would advise decanting it first. Otherwise there is both good energy and freshness to the detailed, mineral-infused and more refined flavors that exhibit fine length on the youthfully austere finale. This possesses fine aging potential and is a wine that will need at least some patience. Outstanding. Drink 2028+

Producer

Domaine Chandon de Briailles

The sibling team at this stunning domaine (Francois and Claude de Nicolay) is most definitely a winning one. Their biggest influence has been to convert the estate firstly to organic and now to biodynamic methods of viticulture and vinification. The wines focus on sensual flavours and refinement, these are not powerful, but the aged vines allow for wines of extraordinary texture and complexity.

Region

Savigny-lès-Beaune

The picturesque village of Savigny-lès-Beaune, just to the north of Beaune, is a relatively prolific producer in Burgundian terms. Less serious than its neighbours, Pommard and Volnay, these are nonethless delicious wines - perfumed, delicate and elegant. A tiny amount of white is produced.
