Savigny-lès-Beaune "Les Grands Liards" 2006, Patrick Javillier
This is a typical and satisfying Savigny. Cherry, plum, oak. Seems to be a heavy toast on the barrels used in the ageing process although Savigny pinots often carry this "burnt" character perhaps because stone-age man burnt the forest in Savigny and the soil has a deep layer of chestnut and oak cinders. Soft on the palate, this is a feminin Savigny with a delcious flavour of fraises sauvages. Un vin digeste. Very good for a village appellation.
