Product Description

"There is just enough reduction to notice so I would suggest decanting this if you're going to try a bottle young. Otherwise there is good verve and lovely detail to the mineral-inflected light weight flavors that exhibit a touch of rusticity on the delicious and dusty finish that delivers acceptable depth and length."

"The 2012 Savigny-les-Beaune Village has a tight raspberry, bay leaf and dark plum-scented bouquet that needs a few more months to open. The palate is crisp and taut with tart red cherries and strawberry, although there is a touch of attenuation on the finish at the moment."

REVIEWS ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES

Benjamin Leroux Savigny 2011
Stelvin (750ml only). This too offers much juicier, succulent fruit than recent years. It's a style that fits Leroux's Savigny-lès-Beaune like a glove. The 2011 is a blend of declassified Hauts Jarrons 1er Cru (only 5 per cent in '11 as the villages wines were so strong they did not need any help) and villages material from three parcels that cover both the Pernand and Corton side of Savigny-lès-Beaune. It therefore encompasses a range of exposures and soil types. Fully destemmed, it spent 12 months in old oak before six months in tank on its fine lees before being bottled without fining or filtration. This basic élevage makes up the general blueprint for all the Leroux reds, although a percentage of new oak comes into play when we hit the 1er and grand cru level*. This is a blinder of a Savigny village with plenty of ripe, juicy cherry and musky/earthy notes in the glass. The palate is loaded with perfumed, crystallized red berry fruit with hints of forest floor. The tannins are powder-fine and the finish delightfully long and racy. Those who have worked with this cuvée in previous years should not hesitate. Those who don't know this wine should definitely take a look. It's one of the finest Burgundy values we offer each year, along with the Hauts Jarrons and Volnay villages. It's a very Leroux expression of Savigny: suave and succulent, fine and perfumed, with a seamless, fragrant transition from nose to palate to lingering finish. Buy some.
