Product Description

Mid-slope and predominantly limestone-based, Lavières comes from the word "lave" which was the term used in the past to describe the flat limestone slabs used to cover local roofs. Such stones dominate the sub-soil here. This is so delicious, so vibrant and energetic. The vines (from a massale selection planted in 1956) are more than 50 years old and tend to produce a vibrant, supple style of Savigny. This 2011 has a more obvious pungent, smoky mineral element than the wines above. The mid-palate is rich with creamy textured, wild red berry fruit while the finish is infused with lively fruity notes flowing cheek by jowl with a clear mineral streak. We were suitably impressed. 

"Bright medium red. A pretty coulis of red fruits on the nose, given punch by rose petal, sexy brown spices and crushed stone. Tightly wound, even youthfully tough, with strong minerality contributing to an impression of inner-mouth tension. Lovely tangy red fruits here, complicated on the end by saline soil tones."
89-91 points, Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar
