Savigny-les-Beaune "Dessus les Vermots" 2010, Domaine de la Douaix

The back label tells me that Domaine de la Douaix was founded by Belgians called Moustie in 2006. Ripe cherry nose, verging on cassis coulis, jammy. Full on fruit. Pleasant ripe cherry, ripe plum and black berry fruit. Some good fruit acidity buzz on the finish. So ripe it makes one smile, like a brunette colleague you don't know at work showing a little too much cleavage. As one plunges in, there is vanilla and raspberry. Good structure despite the "push up" style on the nose, ripe tannins and a bonne charpente. Overall, a very enjoyable Savigny. Honest and fruity! Scores 25/30 for a Savigny A/C. Allez les Belges!
