A very easy to enjoy Savigny. Feels like it is drinking at its prime, with fully resolved structure and inviting brambly black fruit and spices (including some mint notes). Juicy with a good length. It does feel slightly hollow in the midpalate, but that doesn't take away from it pleasure factor today. I'd drink it over the next 3-5 years.
Opens with some serious sous bois. Funky, too. The red fruit hits upfront with a rather vivacious attack for this point in its evolution. It's very lean, cool, mineral driven-cherry fruit flavors. It's not long, and rather is-what-it-is, but that's ok, as it is right tasty. Great values and I continue to be very fond of Ecard's Savignys.
Just barely approachable, with plenty left in the tank. A wee little bit funky, the acidity and tannin are still sticking out, but the underlying material is visible beneath. Lovely, aromatic, real Burgundy.
Cork was stained up to the top and even appears to have been the tiniest drop that leaked although it dried and sealed. Ruby in color. The nose is very nice with cherries and some damp, wet earth. With air, a bit of funk comes out. On the palate, this tastes young and undamaged. Still more primary than I would have expected a pristine bottle to be. Lots of fresh cherries, a bit of layering unwinds with air showing some minerality/earthiness. Nice texture. Slightly tart but within reason. Nice wine and a reminder of what good values Savigny can be.
