...a timid bouquet at first but eventually unfurls to reveal a mixture of red and black fruit—mulberry and crushed strawberry, a light marine influence developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied and underpinned by fine, almost filigree tannin. I appreciate the elegance of this Savigny that survived despite the frost damage, and there is plenty of vivacity and tension on the finish. Excellent.
...conveying a coolness to its aromas of black cherry, shoe polish, licorice and leather...surprisingly rich and savory on the palate, offering good chewy concentration and inner-mouth floral lift and nicely shaped by harmonious acidity....boasts excellent mid-palate clarity and energy and finishes with firm backbone and very good persistence.
Much more subtle but again not invisible wood sets off the spicy and softly earthy aromas of plum, red currant and a whisper of lavender. The sleek, vibrant more obviously mineral-driven medium weight flavors reflect a taut muscularity before concluding in a firm and serious finish that possess slightly better overall depth and length.
