2020 Domaine Anne-Francoise Gros, Savigny-les-Beaune Premier Cru, Aux Guettes 6x75cl

The wedding of Vosne-Romanée's Anne-Françoise Gros to Pommard's François Parent led to the establishment in 1988 of this superb domaine, with excellent holdings across both the Côte de Beaune and... the Côte de Nuits. With the help of their children Caroline and Mathieu, they produce generous wines of power and depth, with gentle extraction and cool maceration giving the wines a beautifully seductive velvety texture. The bottlings' labels are all adorned with a different female head, inspired by Anne-Françoise and the artist's interpretation of the vineyard's style. Well-made reds from Savigny have performed outstandingly in this vintage, and as one would expect from a producer of this quality, the fact is fully demonstrated in this lovely wine. From the premier cru vineyard adjacent to the Bois de Chenôve there is a warm, sun-kissed bouquet of ripe red fruit here, followed by a juicy, supple, medium-full mouthful of loveliness. With plenty of structure here to take it the distance, there is no hurry, but this will be delightful in just a few years - and indeed long after.

2020 Jean-Jacques Girard, Savigny-les-Beaune Premier Cru, Aux Serpentieres 6x75cl

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. Jeane-Jacques Les Serpentières offers such great value. Opulent and concentrated raspberries and cassis are intertwined with hints of sweet-scented oak and velvety tannins. Outstanding.

2022 Domaine Rossignol Trapet, Savigny-les-Beaune, Les Bas Liards 6x75cl

"Great concentration this year, courtesy of a little summer hail that brought yields down. The 2022 Savigny is generous, almost opulent, with superb, delicious fruit at its core, juicy dark cherry.... Ripe and creamy with beautifully melded tannins showcasing the fine grain texture that characterises Savigny reds, this is very seductive indeed." Mr Wheeler Wine

2022 Benjamin Leroux, Savigny-les-Beaune 6x75cl

2022 continues the run of form we have been reporting from the Savigny-lès-Beaune commune. The altitude and resulting crisp acidity and textures are made to shine in warm vintages. Benjamin is... nothing short of a winemaking luminary, and after his scintillating career at Domaine du Comte Armand, he has taken his label to impressive heights. His Savigny exhibits superb purity, with violets and cherry fruit dominating the bouquet. Benjamin delivers faultless balance, and his tannin management yields a commendably fine grain and light grip to the structure. Overall, here is a cuvée produced by a consummate craftsman, elegant, balanced, and with excellent length. (Mr.Wheeler Wine)

2021 Benjamin Leroux, Savigny-les-Beaune 6x75cl

Gorgeous pinot purity on the nose, giving crushed strawberry, rose petal and a wisp of vanilla. Rounded on the palate, medium-bodied, with marmalade notes tinging the dark berry fruit. Deliciously bitter red/dark cherry finishing up. Superb.

2019 Jean-Jacques Girard, Savigny-les-Beaune Premier Cru, Aux Fourneaux 6x75cl

"Cask sample. Mid crimson. Aroma of sweet oak spice, invitingly fruity – red fruits. Creamy, velvet-like texture, juicy and fresh, lively too. Just a very slight bitterness on the finish, as with the straight Savigny, but that does increase the freshness." 16pts., Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

2020 Domaine Albert Bichot, Pavillon, Savigny-Les-Beaune Premier Cru, Les Grands Picotins 6x75cl

WS90
An exciting new addition to our offer last year, and continuing on good form in 2020, Domaine Du Pavillon is located south of Pommard in the Côte de Beaune. Just as at Domaine du Clos Frantin in... Nuits-Saint-Georges, they practice organic viticulture with an ongoing respect for the complex equilibrium found in nature. The winery was modernized in 2016, allowing the vinification of more of the Côte de Beaune’s star single vineyard wines. From the 2019 vintage, all the wines from the estate bear the certified “organic wine” label. A new addition to our portfolio, easily earning its place in our roster. The winemaker included some whole-bunch this year, giving this a lifted, aromatic and floral nose. This is a study in understated elegance and red-fruit driven, classy, delicate Burgundy - yet with plenty of subtle intensity and power on the finish. One for lovers of terroir-specific Burgundy.
