I have to say that this wine is even better now than when I first tasted it – or at least my memory of it! I suppose that means I’ll have to ensure I get my orders in for a mixed case each of 2007, 2008 & 2009…
2006 Louis Chenu, Savigny-lés-Beaune 1er Aux Clous
Medium, medium-plus cherry-red. Lovely, soft red fruit with a depth that keeps pulling your nose to the glass. Slightly plump texture, wide and clean, pretty red fruit with a even a little more dimension in the mid-palate. ‘Just right’ acidity, some velvet tannin, if you search, and a good finish. Class in a glass, a very lovely bottle.
