Complex inviting aroma of slightly ripe berries, violets, smoke, pepper. Pure clear berry juice on the palate, with penetrating fruit and a clear acid frame, some lurking tannins, a long acid finish. A commanding wine worth deep contemplation, precise, clear and complex. 50 + 18 + 16 + 9.
A little out of balance at first, with a strong acidic backbone, but after some time this opens up and mellows out. A nice wine, clearly a Pernand/Savigny, but I feel that the lean style of the winemaker coupled with the vintage characteristics may not be the perfect match. Drinking well now.
