2014 Savigny les Beaune Les Grands Picotins: due to the small yields Les Grands Picotins has an extraordinary concentration and depth; more so than many 1er Crus. The vineyard lies on a gravel base that drains well and gives it an intense black fruit quality. This wine will easily age for 5-7 years.

This wine was imported directly from Maison Alex Gambal. To see other wines currently available from Maison Alex Gambal, please click the link with the name of this producer underlined above, just to the right of "Producer."

    91 Well-marked by smoky, vanilla-tinged oak, with black cherry details lingering in the background. A flashy style, showing substance and fine length. Best from 2019 through 2030. 75 cases made.

    90 Biodynamically grown grapes give pure red fruits, with fresh berry flavors that are shot through with acidity. It has a generous feel, with a crisp texture that gives the necessary lift. Drink from 2017.

    88 There is just enough reduction present to push the underlying fruit to the background so I would advise decanting this first if you're tempted to try a bottle upon release. Otherwise there is a lovely sense of energy to the delineated and slightly more voluminous flavors that possess a suave and refreshing mouth feel, all wrapped in a delicious and solidly persistent finish. This is a fine Savigny villages.
