I thought this was delicious for village level...bright red fruit, tart and ripe, cool menthol and damp earth with savory elements, some used french oak apparent...alot more tannin than id expect...

2019 Architectural/Structural/Civil building team pig roast day!

Brambly blackberry, a touch austere. 1500ml

Best with slight chill, needs lots of air.

Pale ruby. Reserved aromas. Some red fruits, hints of forest floor. Subtle, as Chorey can be. Not showing as much overt ripeness as Ive seen in other appellations, including Beaujolais, in 2015.
Prett classic and nice to see at a fair price on the list at Red Ginger in Traverse City MI.

Very good but not quite as ashy as the last time we had this.

Extremely expressive and bright nose. Juicy and fun with loads of red fruit.. Cranberries, fresh cherry, tart strawberry, crushed black pepper and layers of wet soil. Much more tannin than the color and varietal would suggest, yet still light, refreshing and balanced. Pairs perfect with the tail end of summer and a big plate of salmon.

Light bodied, not too expressive but extremely quaffable.

Persistent, stony, and succulent. A fun contrast to the fruitier Domaine Drouhin Laurene Dundee Hills '12, which hopefully @Eli Barton will post..

A really pretty nose but nothing but bitterness and acidity on the palate. #savignylesbeaune #burgundy
