September 18, 2020 - Tempted to say wine flawed or defective. But I don't know. Wine thin and bitter with little of interest on the nose either.
June 23, 2020 - A little bit more bright than the ‘17 but the same nice characters of cherries and nice tannins. Great for accompanying food

May 7, 2020 - Face au Maréchal, celui-ci a encore du temps devant lui contrairement au Maréchal qu'il faut boire maintenant. Par contre, je lui trouve un coté légèrement renfrogné, austère, un peu trop caricatural de la Côte-de-Beaune. S'améliore le lendemain, mais manque de subtilité et de finesse pour moi.
April 18, 2020 - This was a very pretty wine, in a good place right now. I didn't keep any notes. But this was earthy, red fruited, with a spine of acidity. Remained juicy, and versatile with food at dinner over three different nights.
January 26, 2020 - A lovely light and tannic Burgundy with more than a few years up its sleeves.
On day three, its tannins and length really come to the fore.
Light red with a browning edge. Nose is closed down by a stemmy spice that cuts through.
Red fruits, touch of orange peel, and earth pull early in to the drying middle.
It sits light and low in the palate, with crunchy acidity and powdery tannins.
Finish is translucent, grippy, with a touch of mint and browning leaves. It is quite long, I love the menthol and earth and red fruit length.
Very good wine, just short of excellent. At $50 odd in Australia you’ll be able to buy a local wine with a whole lot more stuffing, but then it won’t taste like Burgundy. It delivers more than expected from its Savigny ‘village’ level.
3.75 to 4 out of 5. Drink now to 3 years.
October 30, 2019 - Coravin pours. Lots of red, dark and black fruits - blackberry, blueberry and cherry. Floral, gravel and mineral. Very good with the roast, herbal duck and with the red potatoes with herbs and a touch of duck fat.
Jen liked this even better than I did, so this is her score. (Mine was 90).
Great qpr for $18.75 / bottle on sale. (Regular price would be $28-$35 US). I wish I had bought more than 3 bottles!
Drink now or hold.
October 5, 2019 - Burgundy "Masterclass" - Day 1 (Sydney, New South Wales, Australia): [From Coravin] The nose has a medium(-) intensity, showing notes of mineral (funky wet dirt), Brett (subtle sweat; not offensive), oak (subtle clove). The palate is dry with medium(-) acidity, medium(-) tannins; there is a great balance between these elements. The flavours are more intense (at a medium level), and show a strong core of black fruit (black cherry) supported by a reasonable oak treatment (chocolate, clove, cinnamon). The finish has a medium(+) length.
October 5, 2019 - From Coravin. Earthy, mineral, the fruit sweeter but more muted, a little sour lozenge, very slight stalkes, sour red currant and cranberry, shap acid. Slightly bitter on the finish with tannic burr. Hmm.
August 5, 2019 - Crisp, floral and gravel notes. Lots of dark and black fruits - blackberry, blueberry and cherry. Very good with the roast, herbal chicken and the chicken pot pie.
Drink now or age
July 26, 2019 - Cerises croquantes mais un bel équilibre, sans note de verdure, très bon .
