Always a favourite cuvée of mine, but that’s not quite enough to overcome the vintage imperfection – not yet anyway.
2004 Tollot-Beaut, Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Champ-Chevery
Medium colour. A clear, if not stomach churning, vintage character, below is a deep, dark and slightly sweet fruit base. The combination of acidity and faintly astringent tannin have a not too mouth-puckering affect, and the texture is quite interesting. The fruit has just enough sweetness to deliver a level of balance.
