One of Savigny’s oldest domaines, originally founded in 1529. Jean-Jacques has been producing wine here as the sole proprietor since 1998, and with significant recent investment in the cellar and winery he is producing outstanding wines. With his long experience of viticulture, Jean-Jacques firmly believes that the best wines are made in the vineyard and thus focuses his efforts on optimising the quality and health of the grapes themselves. This effort is reflected in his delightfully supple, elegant and classic wines, with his Savigny and Corton releases of particular note in 2020.
Understandably one of our most popular wines year in, year out, this is yet another status-defying example of outstanding winemaking. Deep, concentrated plum and cherry fruits with floral hints and toasted spicy notes. This is complemented by a lovely, layered structure and is already showing a silkiness to its well-framed tannins. Surprisingly accessible now, it will give huge pleasure upon arrival and equally so when in mid-term drinking thereafter. Don’t miss out!
