Burgundy-Report

  • By Bill Nanson
    3/1/2006, (See more on Burgundy-Report...)

    (Potel Nicolas Savigny-lès-Beaune Les Vergelesses) Drunk to follow the Bichot village Savigny. Medium-plus cherry-red colour. The nose is initially more about forest floor than fruit, even a concern about taint, but it doesn't develop on either the nose or palate, eventually (2+ hours) good, high-toned red fruit. The palate is less about the austere precision of the Bichot, and more about an earthy (from a texture perspective) and exciting complexity of sweet fruit - exactly the same contrast as in these two producer's 2004 Malconsorts - grainy tannin and just an edge of blackness, perhaps a hint of toast too on the finish. Frankly the texture makes me think of brett, perhaps how the nose starts substantiates that - perhaps not. Right now this is still a good wine of real value.
