Top Notes For
Mike Saviage

Bright cherry color core with tawny rims. Masculine nose. A bit closed at first. Notes of raspberries, briary wood, spice, rhubarb and some dark moist soil. Becomes a bit medicinal with air in a good way. Power grows with several hours of air. My last note was “massive”. Great bottle! (Bday dinner 7/13)

Fresh and vigorous. Glorious, vivid bright. A touch of grapefruit. A long wait to go.

Amazing aromatics of fresh berries with iron mineral and incredible purity . Young yet accessible with savory component . Young yet approachable but better with more time . Amazing bottle that will only get better !

Good deep red. Aromas of black raspberry, graphite, chocolate, cocoa powder and herbs, plus an earthy tobacco hint of Montecristo No. 2. A wine of great power and energy, just beginning to round into its adult form. Wonderfully savory flavors of dark raspberry and Cuban cigar tobacco, plus a suggestion of honey. Really glistens on the palate, showing an uncommonly suave texture and strong minerality. This wine is at the beginning of a long peak-drinking window; in fact, my sample seemed still to want to tighten up in the bottle. This still-youthful wine finishes with terrific savory grip. I should note that Roumier actually prefers his 1999 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses to this wine! (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, March 2018)

More structured than the Vogue. Tons of fine ground spice and dark berry fruit. Elegant while still letting its power known.
