2017 Chandon de Briailles Savigny-les-Beaune Les Lavieres

RATINGS

92Vinous / IWC

...vibrant, spicy, rose petal and violet bouquet...palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin...more masculine and structured, with a lovely marine element tincturing the dark berry fruit toward the chalky finish. Excellent.

90The Wine Advocate

...aromas of juicy cherries, rose petal, currant leaf, rich soil and warm spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, satiny and succulent palate, with melting tannins, juicy fruit and a sapid finish.

16Jancis Robinson

Tangy, like small, wild red berries. Relatively light on the palate but the fruit and the tannin/acid structure are in harmony.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Savigny-les-Beaune, Les Lavieres

Savigny-lès-Beaune is the third largest producing appellation in the Côte de Beaune and has 1,343 vineyard acres. Located three miles north of Beaune, the commune of Savigny-lès-Beaune is one of Burgundy’s largest communes with early 1,500 inhabitants. Some 97% of the vineyards are planted to Pinot Noir, with the remainder planted to Chardonnay. And though there are no Grands Crus, there are 22 Premiers Crus in whole or part. The appellation is divided into vineyards that are either on the hillsides to the north of the highway and river, or on the hillsides to the south. Many reviewers believe that the best vineyards are to the north of the highway, and they include Aux Serpentieres, Aux Vergelesses, and Les Lavieres, among others. The northern vineyards have some of the best southern exposure in Burgundy, which accounts for the quality of the wines from those vineyards. The wines of Savigny-lès-Beaune are considered lighter than many other Burgundy reds. However Robert M. Parker Jr. has noted that the “top wines are usually ready to drink young and are very fruity and stylish…”

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
