Savigny Lès Beaune, Côte De Beaune

Domaine Jean-Jacques Girard

Savigny-lès-Beaune Pinot Noir 2016

Revisiting a bottle we last tasted in the intimate chateau of the Girard's in Spring of 2018.

Nose has the brightest fresh cherry note of any village Burgundy appellation, fresh Thanksgiving cranberry dressing and moist leather.
Palate has insane/deep cherry for days, dried citrus peel, grippy tannins and a long finish. Great structure and built for the long haul.

Photos of the cool/moist barrel cellar of the chateau, older bottles collecting cellar mold, the new winemaking facility out at the rear of the property and our bottle of the evening.

Opening this too soon for sure, but damn 2016 Burgundy is incredibly tasty and it's hard to hold back! Buy all your can afford, seriously.

This one started out with lean fruits and a fair amount of dry earth. But, after two hours in the decanter, put on weight, body thickened with creamy texture, dark currants, dark chocolate, soft baking spices with soft minerality, moist forest floor earthiness and withering dark flowers. Ended well with our dessert of dark chocolate and strawberries.

Thank you Christina for sharing this Grand Cru Burgundy with us.

This was part of last nights dinner with friends. Certainly had no thought of upstaging you or anyone. ✌️

We'll never upstage each other, but I'm having Affogato now and I'm in heaven.
