2006 Bize Simon, Savigny-lès-Beaune BlancJan. 2011
Fresh aromas of agrumes. The palate is quite full but there’s the requisite acidity behind. Nicely round mid-palate and with good flavour too.
2009 Boisset Jean-Claude, Savigny-lès-Beaune BlancJan. 2011
Only 50% of the malolactic completed here. The aromas are fuller and show sone hints of vanilla. This has a lovely insinuating concentration – lovely balance. Yum.
2007 Potel Nicolas, Savigny-lès-Beaune BlancJul. 2009
Fresh, high-toned, slightly estery fruit aromas that are nicely balanced by a creamy undertow. On the tongue, nice fruit and a good level of freshness. Actually quite a pretty wine.
2007 Terres d'Arômes, Savigny-lès-Beaune BlancApr. 2009
The grapes are from a south-east exposed slope. Squeeky-clean aromas jump from the glass. The palate is fresh and ripe with an understated padding of fat. Full of flavour, slightly exotic but with perfect freshness. Lots of excitement in the glass.
2006 Moillard-Grivot, Savigny-lès-Beaune BlancDec. 2008
Wide and high-toned, perhaps a little diffuse, but not bad. Plenty of punch and freshness. The fruit has a slightly baked aspect but it’s fresh enough – the finish is decently long too.
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 Boisset Jean-Claude, Savigny-lès-Beaune BlancApr. 2008
Four barrels from 2 parcels mainly just under Les Vergelesses. Rich and concentrated fruit on the nose. In the mouth it’s nicely concentrated, showing plenty of forward fruit and a lingering finish
2006 Thomas-Moillard, Savigny-lès-Beaune BlancNov. 2007
Quite a concentrated nose with a subtle undertone of vanilla. There is nice texture and some depth. There is also a nicely creamy base to this wine – long too. I’m very surprised by the quality of this wine, it’s very , very good.
2003 Pavelot Jean-Marc et Hugues, Savigny-lès-Beaune BlancMar. 2005
Actually contains some old-vines (50 yo) pinot blanc. Pale yellow colour. The nose bursts with melon, pineapple and green-apple skin. Some fat, and despite a mouthwatering finish, my taste begs more acidity. Whilst quite simple in the mouth there’s a really engaging and long finish.
