Savigny les Beaune 1Er Cru Clos des Guettes 2014 AF Gros
€ 47,19 (incl. Vat)
The 2015 Pommard 1er Cru les Pezerolles was matured in 80% new oak this year. That wood is handled well on the nose, allowing attractive scents of blackcurrant, redcurrant and iodine to filter through. The palate is medium-bodied with a rounded and quite dense opening. This is a spicy number, a little chewiness on the mid-palate with a finish that needs to muster a touch more detail and refinement. I appreciate the sustain on the spicy finish, but I would just like to see more expression of this great vineyard in the wineglass.
This is more spicy than the Boucherottes but still has lovely lifted red fruit. A combination of creamy oak effect and juicy fruit that gives a fluid but sustained quality in the mouth. (JH)
