Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru "Les Peuillets" 2013, Domaine Pavelot
Plenty going on in this Savigny 1er Cru from "Les Peuillets" which sits at the southerly end of the appellation towards Beaune. Red cherry, red plum, laced with tannin. This Savigny 2013 has the structure one would expect from a wine in a deeper clay soil on the valley soil. There is a bit of green tea in there, some blood orange, shavings of star anise. A medium body, good balance, likely to evolve well. A fair amount of grip on the finish and aged in 15% new oak reflecting the overall structure of the wine. Good stuff. Scores 21-23/30 for a Savigny 1er Cru.
