France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru
Great floral and lavender nose buoyed by light red fruits. Fairly firm structure yet light to medium bodied with good complexity Bramble character, too. Well balanced and should age gracefully for some time. From 2014.
France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru
A virtual powerhouse considering its from the 2007 vintage. Rich red fruit nose--though a bit monolithic--that carries through into a lush, fairly ripe red fruit palate. Quite accessible at this stage, and still refined for all its opulence. It drinks well now, but will no doubt age for at least fifteen years.
