Savingy-lès--Beaune 1er Cru "Serpentières" 2008, Ecard
Deep plum, shows some age at the rim. Undergrowth (sousbois), autumnal forest walk, plums, slightly sour cherries, hint of truffle, gamey. Evolves to mint tea and cacao. Medium to high acidity, rounded tannins, black cherry and plum flavour with a fresh kick. A wonderfully complex wine at the top of its game. Scores 27/30 for a Savigny 1er Cru.
