Benjamin Leroux Savigny 2017

Speaking of delicious! The classic blend of sources for this cuvée is back, with fruit from a range of exposures and soil types. The lion's share of the 2017 comes from the outstanding Aux Forneaux terroir in the north of the village.

Product Description

Speaking of delicious! The classic blend of sources for this cuvée is back, with fruit from a range of exposures and soil types. The lion's share of the 2017 comes from the outstanding Aux Forneaux terroir in the north of the village. Then there's Les Peuillets and 1er Cru Hauts Jarrons in the south, and Ez Connardises in the heart of the village making up the quartet of parcels. Again, the fruit was mostly destemmed (15% whole bunches were applied to the Aux Forneaux parcel) and the wine saw next to no new oak. Two-thirds of the Savigny villages is now raised in foudre. The notes below describe the wine well--it's a lifted, aromatic and super pretty red Burgundy laced with delicate red fruits, rose and jasmine florals and a crunchy, refreshing finish. There's surprising depth in the context of the level but overall it's a super pure, pretty and floral red Burgundy. 

"Was barrel now in foudre. All village in 2017, the 1er cru has been made apart. Medium deep red, with an attractive savoury deep red fruit on the nose, followed by a surprising weight of fresh cherry fruit and then some additional lifted quality from a few stems (Fourneaux) at the back. Not massive but very pretty, and actually with exceptionally persistence." 89 points, Jasper Morris, InsideBurgundy.com

"A layered blend features mostly notes of red and dark currant with background nuances of earth and an attractive floral hint. The palate impression of the lighter weight flavors is also quite energetic while delivering slightly better depth and persistence on the linear and dusty finish." 87-89 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound issue 75
