Another cellar ‘find’. Indeed there are other 06 Chenus to be drunk over the next weeks!
2006 Louis Chenu et Filles, Savigny-lès-Beaune (Blanc)
Medium lemon yellow colour. The characteristic high-toned aromas of Savigny have been augmented with fruit of a rather deeper and riper register here. Likewise across the palate, this offers a little texture and richness plus a ripe, not too sweet fruit that has good mid-palate intensity. From the fridge this is bold and fun, with nice acidity, let it warm in the glass and it becomes a little heavier and perhaps a little over-rich. You have been warned – small pours or drink quickly – in either case you will enjoy!
Rebuy – Maybe
