louis chenu’s 2015 aux clous

2015 Louis Chenu, Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Aux Clous
Ooh – what an aromatic wine! The nose actually tightens with a little aeration, but the palate just gets broader and longer. The nose reaches equilibrium with a macerating cherry – but soft, without a sharp acid edge. In the mouth it’s as aromatic as the nose started with an exceptionally floral accent to (again) broad cherry fruit – it seems a little short to start but keeps getting better and better – but this time with more definition and focus to the cherry thanks to the beautiful acidity. Weight, beautiful silky texture and a compote of fruit and flowers. You can find more academic Savigny, but never one more hedonistic. To luxuriate in – such a beautiful thing!
Rebuy – Yes
