Savigny Lès Beaune, Côte De Beaune

Domaine Jean-Jacques Girard

Les Narbantons Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Nose is cherry perfume. Mellow but gorgeous.

Palate is cherry and cherry lipstick. Fresh. Juicy, delicious. Hint of cherry licorice.

Giraffe is a model of consistency. Never a bad bottle.

As this opens more gods cherry density. Wow.

At first I was a bit underwhelmed, but as it opens, I’m more and more impressed with the purity and focus in this wine. The fruit character is nowhere near as intense as the similarly aged examples from California and Oregon I’ve been tasting recently, but it has much more to offer in both flavor and freshness than I expected from a 15-year-old village level Burg. The nose is subtle but flirtatious, showing cherry, dried raspberry, almond, cardamom, and a hint of dust, all of which carry through to the impeccably balanced and oh so elegant palate. Winning. — 24 days ago

Savigny-les-Beaune Pinot Noir 2017

Fresh tannins that back up the bright red fruit. Could probably use another couple of year for it to come together, but easy drinking and will be a favorite as the summer weather sets in. — a day ago

Delicious. Lemon zest, flint, salinity, citrus and baking spice. Richer and more flamboyant than expected. Overdelivers for price. — a day ago

Could be a less than perfect bottle sure, but it definitely opened up some overnight and was better on day two. Fairly fierce though, and definitely on the dark side of things. I guess I’ve only hade Dominide post-2010 and never really considered it a dark fruited wine. If I had another one I’d open for science, but I don’t. Would be kinda shocked if any 2005 were OTH give me that 99’s aren’t even in their early window to me yet!

99 not an overripe vintage like 2005.

@Lyle Fass indeed. I hadn’t really thought of 05 as an overripe vintage like 03, but my sample size is VERY limited, and, to both of our tastes, Inthink we prefer more “classic” vintages!

Aux Gravains Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2011

Dark rubi robe, nose of spices and dark berries. Very good medium length mouth with good balance and concentration. Its better than the vintage says. And in no rush to drink. Its a really good bottle ! — 7 days ago

Les Vergelesses Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Chardonnay 2006

Just what I desire from older white burgundy. Great balance. Fat and mineral. Singing for 3 days straight. Great case for Les Vergellese being a Chardonnay vineyard rather than pinot. Bought at auction for a song. Regardless even at current vintage prices I see this is absolutely value. — 12 days ago
