Reviews and Ratings
|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Savigny has nice, ripe chewy Pinot Noirs to offer and should not be overlooked alongside more notable villages, like Beaune or Aloxe Corton. It offers superb value Pinot that is ideal for cellaring 3-7 years.
This one, from Dom Du Prieuré, is ripe and chewy when young, but cellared examples show a lot of the maturity notes good Burgundy is prized for.
The colour is a deep crimson, which is significantly darker towards the core.
Aromas of mushroom, tilled earth, beets, cherries, blackberries, and cranberry. The oak is seamless. There was a rosey florality, after opening up after a few minutes.
The savouriness does continue on the palate a bit: cedar, anise, and rooibos. Great redfruit leaning towards red cherry, cranberry, and red plum. Blackberry too.
The lès-Beaune suffix merely indicates proximity to neighbouring Beane.
This wine gets bonus points for value in this category. Put it alongside lamb tourtiere or flavourful cheese, like Cantal.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Tart cherry and earthy aromatics, with harmonious palate of cherries and red plums, forest floor and very subtle oak. Harmonious, well-balanced with medium sour fruit finish. Enjoy with pork tenderloin or grilled salmon.
|This Burgundian Pinot Noir sources grapes grown in the northern Beaune appellation. Lots of acidity. Pair with roast turkey. - Community Wine Reviews|
