Les Lavières Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Lyle Fass
9.3

Have not had since 2019. Nose is brambly with a cherry melange. Very earthy. Some wood shavings. A bit aromatically closed for now. Palate is juicy, very concentrated and sappy with great purity. Really long but also seems backwards. But terrific fruit and intensity. Very very sappy. Needs a few more years but you can the low yields of 16 gave this wine density and tons of material.

After an hour this has softened up and is super juicy and the tannins have calmed down. 9.2 to 9.3. Lavieres is such good terroir.

Les Marconnets Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

So much more open than the Les Fournaux, and fuller-bodied too. The nose had a rustic edge, offering brambly cassis, framed by earthy elements, violets, and a beautiful orange rind character. Good detail on the palate, echoing the nose with the dark fruit and earthy notes, and adding some spices and mineral notes in the finish. Unmistakably different from the Les Fournaux (flavour, fruit weight), yet there’s a sense of sameness between the two Bize wines (acid and tannin structure, minerality) - ah, the wonders of Burgundy! What a lovely study. — a month ago

Les Cents Vignes Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2019

First time we tried it, and its to our taste. Medium dark rubi robe, beautiful nose of spices and cherries, medium bodied, elegant, complex. Really good stuff and left us thirsty at the end. — 20 days ago

Maison Arnoux & Fils

Les Pimentiers Savigny-lès-Beaune Pinot Noir 2017

Loads of crushed limestone minerality intermingles with spicy, ripe cherry. Nice texture in the mouth. It’s got some tannic structure and acids to age a bit more but is drinking well now, particularly with food. Bone dry but with good intensity in the mouth. Little bit of animal fur comes in, with tons of crushed rock in the lead and some nice cherry fruit in the passenger seat. — a month ago

Savigny-lès-Beaune Pinot Noir

Drunk for my wife’s 40th Bhageecha in Elstree. Drunk with food, and solo. Deep berry that cascades to lovely light, fruity after taste. We had 2015 vintage. Highly recommended. — 15 days ago

Les Rouvrettes 1er Cru Savigny-lès-Beaune Pinot Noir

This was a surprise. The body was lighter than I expected, the nose practically busting with forest floor and dusty ripe red fruits, dusty tannins, but for this meal it paired perfectly. Drank at Arnaud’s in New Orleans. #pinotforpresident — 20 days ago

Savigny Les Saucours Savigny-lès-Beaune Chardonnay 2017

2022/4/18-19. A bit of reduction at first, but it blows off to reveal salty citrus, cold butter and stone. Toasted brioche peaks out here and there. The depth for a villages Savigny is quite remarkable. — a month ago
