Superb nose. Mid to late season cherries, spice, loads of earth, deep and well fruited. So appealing. Palate is lovely. Elegant, nimble and racy with loads of cherry fruit with great intensity but remains lithe and elegant. Precise and balanced. Beautiful. Pure. Classic. Ripe, juicy tannins and such succulence on the mid palate and the finish. — 22 days ago

Love this cuvee. Darker nose than the Les Vergelesses. Tree bark, moss, mid season cherries. Huge minerals. Almost a limestone feeling. Wild apples. Wet earth. Savory. Sweet. Feral and wild. Just stunning. Even some black cherry after some air. Just awesome. Big huge red and black cherry fruit. Lovely electric almost Rieslingesque limestone minerality. Explosive and deep with awesome purity and earthy sweetness. Terrific delineation of flavor and so much material yet so light and delicate even. Only in Burgundy. Super complex and ripe and big tannins suggest even more aging if one desires. — 3 months ago

The rare Savigny Les Beaune Blanc from GIRARD. I love this wine. Big, expansive nose, hints of sweet oak, ripe pears and apples. Gorgeous underpinning of minerality. Palate has such good energy, with some richness and loads of fruit. I love 17 white burg. This is terrific. Good freshness, finesse and delineation. So clean. Great showing. — 19 days ago

Gorgeous nose of lemon, minerals, lime rock candy, incredibly refined. Palate is like a baby Corton Chatlrlemagne with a kiss of oak, luscious Golden minerality, incredibly compact and complete with terrific energy, awesome sap and concentration with terrific purity and density. So clean and balanced with a terrific long finish. — 2 months ago

Stunning nose. Perfectly ripened mid-season cherries and loads of just perfect undergrowth. Also hints of very fine tweed jacket. A lipstick like intensity. Like a new Brioni. Gorgeous violets and other complex floral notes. Hints of citrus. This is just singing. Really stunning. It’s so clean and airy and just super Savigny. So pure and so dare I say it, Delectable. Palate is wonderful. So lifting with crunchy, ripe and gorgeous mid season sour and red cherry fruit. So vivid and detailed. Terrific inner mouth aromas of underbrush, violets, other floral notes and loads of crunchy cherry and even ripe cranberry fruit. Long and delineated with amazing energy and precision. Long, detailed with that perfect Burgundian finish of earth, mineral, cherry fruit, flowers and undergrowth. Superbly fine and refined tannins with lovely freshness than really pushes this finish to the next level. There is a tiny bit of rugged tannin on the finish which will resolve with age. — 24 days ago

What a nose. Wide open. Big cherry. Mint, menthol, some black cherry inflections and even cherry flower. Wow. Moss. Soil tones. Very very high toned nose. Impressive. Jumps out of glass at you. Red apple as well. Just awesome. Palate is ripe and rich with lovely finesse and huge cherry overload. Lovely freshness and purity with a nice helping of diet. Lovely texture and tang with terrific, finesse, energy and balance. Love this. Lithe and very fine tannins with lovely earthy sweetness. What a mouthfeel. Love the hint of bitter, succulent sour cherry on the finish. — 3 months ago
