Savigny-lès-Beaune "Les Montchenevoy" 2007, Patrick Javillier
Savigny is better known for its cherry-flavoured pinots than its whites which are similar to the broad and earthy chardonnays from Beaune. This is a splendid example. White cherry flesh, suggestions of mango and lovely rich gala melon. Round, fleshy, gouleyant, with good breadth and oak spice on the finish. Tasted at the domaine this was a hit with the dégustateurs (as shown in photo).
