Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru "Serpentières" 2009, Michel & Joanna Ecard
This 2009 Serpentières has a superb ripe nose of cassis, plum and black cherry. Some sweet spices creeping in there like cloves and cinnamon. Subtle and engaging. The mature tannins have softened and this is a lovely wine to drink. There are additional tertiary aromas like rye bread and plum stones. The delicious fruit-driven style is reflected in the lack of new oak barrels and 100% destemming. Scores 27/30 for a Savigny premier cru.
