    September 30, 2021 - Nice pretty light red. On pop and pour nose is pretty red fruit/cherries. Acid predominates the lovely light red fruit. Quite pleasing.

    August 8, 2020 - A high acid 2008. Pretty aromatics and an attack of juicy dark cherries and earth. Mid palate is all acid but cherries jump back in at the end. Worked well with tonight’s duck.

    January 2, 2019 - This is the bee's knees! Last bottle consumed in 2011 was bright and youthful...full of flavor...this bottle 8yrs later still showing wonderful fresh crushed raspberry and black cherry, more tertiary earth and savory than the crunchy snap in its youth. Full stem funk, sandalwood spice, smoked cherry tree twigs...has a wonderful silky smooth palate, structure just hanging on with the slightest dusty powdery tannins...aged leather and smoky forest floor...pretty flowers...soft, slight white pepper spice finish. Probably a little more fun in its youth...but tasty none the less, especially for the address.

    January 28, 2017 - December '16 - January '17 Events: One of the classier, most concentrated SLBs I’ve had. Aromas of blackberry and licorice. Dense for a Savigny but still high-toned, with flavors of crushed blackberry and dark chocolate. Dusty tannins suggest there is still evolution left for this bottle. Agree with other note on the stemmy funkiness as well. Would have rated higher but it just wasn't at my preferred ripeness level.

    November 25, 2016 - Lightly tart crunchy red berries, stems, and light baking spices with good acidity set against an earthy backdrop. Very good depth and nuance and finishes with a lovely touch of pinot sap. Will soften a bit more with time but an excellent SLB that is open for business. Had alongside a 2011 Rhys Family Farm that showed a surprisingly similar flavor profile, if a bit more brash and stemmy. Drink or hold.
