What a coincidence – I find one of these in the cellar but don’t have my camera to hand, so look if I’ve a photo from a previous T-B Lavières – lo and behold, almost exactly one year ago, the same wine! Maybe I should start to ‘research’ before I pop the cork! Oh well! As a footnote, this is now a little narrower and sleeker, I was also too late to buy some magnums…
2008 Tollot-Beaut, Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Les Lavières
Deep, dark, squeeky-clean fruit with just a little vanilla to add weight. There is still plenty of comfy texture, dovetailed to fine acid-borne intensity – the last note remains a hint of vanilla-infused rock – the tannin is still completely submerged in its fine-ness. I think it’s lost just a little fat in the last year, but it remains very drinkable – very!
Rebuy – Yes
