Without doubt I’m a little biased, but what wonderful value this wine is, not just from the basic perspective of Savigny pricing, but for the impressive quality within too…
2010 Camille Giroud, Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Les Peuillets
Medium, medium-plus colour. Aromatically there’s still more than a nod to the barrels with a creamy depth to pretty red fruit. In the mouth the oak adds multiple dimensions but can only do so because of the wine’s inherent depth of flavour – otherwise that oak would be very boring! Sweetness of cushioned red fruit and a peak of acid-borne, high-toned flavour in the mid-palate. This is just lovely – but the domaine is sold out of 2010s – thankfully there are more in this cellar!
