2006 Chenu Louis Père et Filles, Savigny-lès-Beaune Aux ClousDec. 2009
Medium, medium-plus cherry-red. Lovely, soft red fruit with a depth that keeps pulling your nose to the glass. Slightly plump texture, wide and clean, pretty red fruit with a even a little more dimension in the mid-palate. ‘Just right’ acidity, some velvet tannin, if you search, and a good finish. Class in a glass, a very lovely bottle.
2006 Chenu Louis Père et Filles, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les TalmettesDec. 2008
Medium, medium-pale cherry-red colour. The aromatics are wide, perhaps a little high-toned and alcoholic but over a denser slightly savoury fruit core. A little dissolved gas on the palate, good red fruits and young tannin – accentuated by the gas. There’s a nice burst of interest on the mid-palate and there’s good, if slightly prickly, acidity (gas again). This needs a year in the cellar, and the performance will be far better than described above if you decant an hour before serving. Excellent value wine in an elegant package.
2006 Chenu Louis Père et Filles, Savigny-lès-Beaune BlancJul. 2008
Barrel fermented and from a 2 hectare plot that contains about 10% pinot blanc. Some depth on the nose. This is a wine that really expands on the palate, providing lots of savoury flavour as it heads for the finish. Very well balanced, and would be an excellent match with food.
2006 Chenu Louis Père et Filles, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les TalmettesJul. 2008
Wide, high-toned aromatics that quickly tighten in the glass, perhaps a trace of caramel. The palate shows a little more tannin than the 07’s, but there is the depth of concentration to match and a super dimension of fruit too. Slightly lower acidity also than the 07’s but still mouth-watering, lingering flavours. This is excellent
2006 Chenu Louis Père et Filles, Savigny-lès-Beaune Aux ClousJul. 2008
The nose starts a little tight, but becomes more and more expressive, revealing aromatic width and depth, lovely ripe but fresh fruit that suggests creamyness. Fine texture with super fruit that is concentrated and complex in the mid-palate. This is a very high class Savigny.
2006 Chenu Louis Père et Filles, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les LavièresJul. 2008
The aromatics don’t go as deep as the ‘Clous’ but they show lots of higher-toned width and with a suggestion of baked tart to the red fruit. Again super texture and depth. Bursts with an extra dimension of fruit on the mid-palate before slowly fading.
2006 Chenu Louis Père et Filles, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les Hauts JarronsJul. 2008
Finer fruit aromas and a little extra perfume. This shows a little more acid and tannin structure but retains the same fine fruit as the others. Faintly lingers on the tongue. Another success.
