2007 Chanson Père et Fils, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les DominodeJul. 2010
Medium colour. Less width but much more depth of fruit. This is a little sweeter and friendlier but has a structure not to be under-estimated. There’s a long, mineral finish.
2007 Chanson Père et Fils, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les DominodeMay. 2010

2008 Boisset Jean-Claude, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les DominodeApr. 2010
From a plot originally planted in 1901 – just 3 barrels. A little spice and herb complexity to the dark nose. The tannin is fine and just a little sticky. A dark, pure, intense and quite wiry personality before it heads into the long fresh finish. Always first class this wine…
2000 Pavelot Jean-Marc et Hugues, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les DominodeDec. 2009
Medium-plus colour, still a hint of cherry-red colour. The nose is rather ‘anti-2000′ with a beacon of pure, fresh, faintly blue-skinned fruit at the core and a top note that is slightly more diffuse and herby (that’s a little more 2000!). The palate is not as plush as it was in its youth, but the late attack of the tannins I noticed in previous bottles is now gone – they are are certainly still there if you look for them, but are no problem now. Decently balanced, it’s as ripe as most 2000s but with a fresher aspect to the aromas. Decently concentrated and showing a wiry muscle, I regret only buying 6, I regret even more that only 3 remain…
1997 Pavelot Jean-Marc et Hugues, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les DominodeDec. 2009
Warm, inviting, now starting to develop some chocolate flavours and aromas, no awkward edges. This wine has really entered its early plateau of maturity – it will clearly hold for another 10+ years. Super.
2007 Boisset Jean-Claude, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les DominodeJul. 2009
From vines planted in 1905 of which only about 5% have been replaced. Pure, very fine fruit that is mainly red shaded. Beautiful texture and balance – it has super, yet understated concentration. Very long finishing with mineral elements and a faint astringency – a clear buy!
2000 Pavelot Jean-Marc et Hugues, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les DominodeJul. 2008
Medium colour. Plenty of depth and interest on the nose – black-cherry shaded. The balance is rather good – good acidity and fresh, darker fruit flavours. The tannins have a little bitter chocolate edge, but there’s real depth here – very successful for the vintage, little of the 2000 confiture on the nose and palate. Clearly a little rustic in the finish, but it’s got good length.
1999 Pavelot Jean-Marc et Hugues, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les DominodeJul. 2008
Still deeply coloured. A nose of coal and dark blackberry jam. Plenty of wine here; intense, lingering acidity and decent length. The tannin is present but it’s well-kept and the fruit at its core remains fresh, dark and primary, at the edge I sense some secondary flavours making an entrance. Very drinkable but still at least 5 years from the leading edge of maturity.
2005 Clair Bruno, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les DominodeNov. 2007
A deep and dark nose. Plenty of grainy tannin here coupled with mouthwatering acidity too. Fortunately the fruit is also very interesting and seems up to the job. Good as it is, it’s twice the price of Pavelot’s and not as good.
