As usual I go into this with my Leroy bias, but even trying to look past it, this was an excellent bottle and a nice surprise. Started out a little funky on the nose, but over a couple hours it revealed more and more bright red fruit, spice a serious mineral streak. Same on the palate with great grip and brightness. The finish got longer and longer.
Min fasinasjon for madame Leroy bare øker. Støtter Clayfu i at det er søte røde bær og krydder som jeg aldri har funnet i andre Savigny tidligere. Myk og kjølig pinot frukt med en sødme jeg bare har funnet i Vosne tidligere. Flott lengde. Dette er Savigny på Grand Cru nivå. Utrolig glad det er to flasker til i kjelleren.
As always that wonderful Leroy nose, damp earth, sweet red berries, and spice. On the palate it took a bit to open up as the mid palate rang hollow as the initial hit was brilliant fruit but it faded away quickly as the acidity overpowered that primary fruit. After a hour and a half the fruit bloomed as the fruit become ripe and obvious as the silky texture balanced well with the earthy secondary characteristics running through the finish. Didn't have the concentration of the prior bottles, but drinking well.
