1988 savigny champ chevrey from tollot-beaut…

1988 tollot-beaut savigny champs chevrey

1988 Tollot-Beaut, Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Champ Chevrey
Hmm, the sniff after removing the cork smells a bit cooked – maybe an hour in the refrigerator to give it a cool aeration. The nose now has a little soy sauce and meat and a darker slightly pruny depth – not magnificent, but still no turn-off – a bit of time and it gets ever-more interesting. In the mouth this is rather delicious, smoothly textured until a lumpy mid-palate ride where both the tannins and acidity jolt around a little, but with a sweetness that comes from ripe fruit and a lovely depth of flavour – I find it very moreish. I suspect that carefully stored examples may be even better, but I certainly wouldn’t ignore this if it passed by my corkscrew!
Rebuy – Yes

    Hi Bill nice info, you give me some hope my two 1988 Beaune Clos du Roi from TB are also still good, somewhere im my cellar are waiting also two other older TB bottles: 2 Bottles of the 1991 Corton from TB my oldest vintage i bought directly in Chorey during my first visit in 1994.
    cheers Stefan
