tollot-beaut-savigny-lavieres-2008

This is a wine that I (unfortunately) often forget about; but every time I return I am reminded that I should have bought more.

2008 Tollot-Beaut, Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Les Lavières
After the Bachelet, here is also some oak, but rather than a smothering sweetness, it’s delivered with a spicy element that is more than amply buffered by a growing, crooning floral aromatic – perfect violets. The last drops in the glass offer a beautiful ‘come-hither’ red fruit. In the mouth there is sweetness, but the acidity urges you into the mid-palate where you have the impression that the wines bursts further into life. Long with a mineral end-note. I might buy a magnum or two for rainy day – if I’m not too late!
Rebuy – Yes

    Alas, you are probably too late. I just got back to the States from Beaune, and Natalie Tollot reports that the ’09 Lavieres is sold out, too. She recommended some wine shops in Beaune and Dijon to visit, and I found a total of three bottles of the ’09 languishing, and ZERO ’08. Bummer.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
