91Wine Spectator

Sleek, open and expressive, this red reveals black cherry and blackberry fruit framed by accents of earth and spices. Ends with chalky tannins.

90-92The Wine Advocate

...reveals aromas of orange rind, raspberries, cherries and spices. Medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated, with lively acids and powdery tannin, it possesses plenty of potential.

A cool, airy and restrained nose grudgingly reveals its array of citrus, green apple and mineral reduction scents. There is very good mid-palate density and an abundance of minerality that adds a sense of lift to the precise, moderately austere and bone-dry finale.

16.5Jancis Robinson

Dark-fruited and stony. Firm, chewy, dry-textured in a rather elegant style. More subdued than some yet with lovely finesse. Dry, textured finish.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Savigny-les-Beaune, Aux Guettes

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…”


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.
