Community Tasting Notes (average 89 pts. and median of 88 pts. in 7 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by JOsgood on 5/25/2015: Huge floral nose. Nice medium weight on the palate with a touch of earthy goodness and considerable elegance. (433 views)
 Tasted by whits on 8/9/2014 & rated 88 points: this hit the nostrils with floral perfumes and dried cherries, shows structure and class, remains light, lively acid carries a tune of red berries, spices, mineral and cherry pie on the palate, tart but refreshing and food-friendly (544 views)
 Tasted by kuumies on 8/2/2014: A lively, dark red color that is quite transparent. A simply delicous, earthy and savoury nose of sweet red cherries, strawberry and roses, with hints of funk and mushrooms. Very expressive, very authentic - the clarity of the fruit is just amazing! On the palate mouthfilling with good weight, yet all about purity, structure and freshness. Bursting with bright, ripe red fruit while possessing only a gentle touch of oak. Plenty tannin, but of the ripe and fine-grained sort. Quite velvety and very much a balanced effort, though on the finish the fruit gets a bit thinner. Fairly serious for 17 €. (1007 views)
 Tasted by Sycamore on 12/18/2013 & rated 88 points: At its best aromatically -- expressively spicy there. Acidity most prominent on the palate right now. Very red-fruited. Will probably round out fairly nicely in time. Try again in a year. (733 views)
 Tasted by drwine2001 on 3/3/2013: Medium ruby. All licorice on the nose. Medium weight. Supple weight, fairly monochromatic black fruit, good acidity, impressive penetration in the mouth. Clean and civilized for Savigny. (954 views)
 Tasted by garypn on 3/3/2013 & rated 91 points: Had at Burgundy tasting. Excellent. 91-92. beautifully balanced and quite elegant. Overall, medium to big tannins. Not overly fruity, with supporting mineral base. Medium acidity. Medium to large mouth feel. Long finish. Will be amazing in 4+ years, but will open one in a year or so. (835 views)
 Tasted by drwine2001 on 5/4/2012: Trenel and Dubreuil-Fontaine (SF Wine Trading Company): Bigger with more of a bite than the Pernand Vergelesses. Black fruit, licorice and significant tannin. Needs 3-4 years to smooth the edges. (914 views)

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.

Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru

From Wikipedia

The Village: Savigny-lès-Beaune lies between Beaune to the south and to the north Pernand-Vergelesses with Aloxe-Corton to the east. This vibrant little village is both picturesque and charming. The village dates to the Roman-Gallo Villa Saviniaci. Its twelfth century church, two châteaux, and similarly venerable homes surrounded by their vineyards, invite exploration. Moreover, many (12) of the walls of Savigny's edifices are engraved with wall inscriptions, often on the subject of wine. These date from about 1700 when monsieur de Migieu, who owned the Château de Savigny, had them engraved. One states: "Les vins de Savigny sont nourrissants, théologiques et morbifuges." ("The wines of Savigny are nourishing, theological and death-preventive.") This was doubtless inspired by the Vatican's impressive orders for Savigny's wines, which were far in excess of that needed to celebrate the mass. Today Savigny is village of 1,450 inhabitants (only twice the number from the 13th century!). It is well know for two annual festivals, the first is Bienvenue à Savigny (Welcome to Savigny) held the first weekend in May when most of the village winemakers open their doors for tasting. The second in mid July is Savigny en Tous Sens (Savigny in All Senses) when the village hosts a balade gourmande, featuring numerous village wines, that ends with a sit-down dinner at the Château. This event requires a ticket that can be obtained from the event web site http://www.savigny-entoussens.com/). Savigny is also the home to Cousinerie de Bourgogne, a society of approximately 200 devoted to the celebration of wine. The Wines: Savigny is the third largest producer of red wine in the Côte d'Or behind Beaune and Pommard. It also produces small amounts of whites, rosés, and crémants.

Savigny has no Grand Crus but more Premier Crus than any other village on the Côte d'Or. The village has 22 Premier Crus totaling 141.5 ha, split into two groups by the river Rhoin which runs through it from the Haut Côte down to the plain, those south of the village toward Beaune include les Rouvrettes, Redrescul, les Haut Jarron, La Dominode, les Jarron, les Narbantons, les Haut Marconnets, les Marconnets and those north of the village toward Pernand include Aux Guettes, Aux Clous, Aux Serpentières, Aux Gravains, Petites-Godeaux, les Charnières, les Talmettes, les Lavières, les Vergelesses, Batailière, les Basses-Vergelesses, Champ-Chevrey, and Aux Fourneaux. Savigny's vineyards show two distinct terroirs. Those to the north of the Rhoin face almost due south with full sun and are rich in limestones but with shallow soil, producing lighter, fruitier, faster-maturing wines; those to the south of Rhoin face almost due east (with 1-2 hours less sun) and are sandier with deep soil, producing fuller, more earthy, longer-lived wines. There are also 212.5 ha of village wines including Aux Grands Liards with its vines planted in 1913 and approaching their 100 year anniversary. The village also has 190 ha of regional burgundy vineyards. Of particular importance in the village is the production of crémants, which was started in 1825. The lesser central vineyards lie mostly along the bank of the little Rhoin River, which runs between the two Côtes of Savigny.
