My first 2011 at home. And very tasty it was too.
2011 Louis Chenu et Filles, Savigny-lès-Beaune Blanc
Bottled a little earlier than usual because they had already run out of 2010 and needed something to sell!
Medium-pale lemon-yellow. After the last of the previous day’s Chassagne, this has a more floral aromatic with an occasional savoury reference. In the mouth it’s a little sweeter than the Chassagne and has just a little more balancing acidity too – if not the overall density of that wine. The floral component of the nose is equally on display in the flavour profile. Flighty, interesting, flavoursome and with a good balance to boot. I can also imagine this wine selling-out double-quick!
