Stunning nose of mid season cherries and spices. Gorgeous. So perfumed. Loads of sous-bois. Crunchy and juicy wirh lovely limestone minerality. Slamming. So fresh. So insanely fresh. What a wonderful wine.

This is great! Tart and crunchy but still has volume. The nose is so perfumed and intoxicating. What a wonderful expression of Burgundy and Pinot noir in general

Super aromas, bowl of red cherries, spice, green moss, floral and leaping out of the glass. Juicy and so clean. Needs 20 minutes and then it will be gone in 20 minutes.

Nice everyday Pinot. Ok but not special. Give it 30 min to breathe. Cherry 🍒 mostly hints of dark fruit on the back palate still a little harsh. It’s Savigny so perhaps this is expected. 14 was not a stellar year.

Really high acid. Fruity and aromatic. First purchase in Paris is a win!

Subdued cranberry nose with a hint of raspberry. Very pretty purplish red color. Chalky texture good wood management. In the glass cranberry with blackberry undertones. Needs time very well made
