Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2016 Savigny-lès-Beaune Village was affected by frost and was reduced to six barrels instead of the usual 30 to 35. The premier cru Aux Jarrons was reduced from 12 to three barrels and therefore the two were blended together to make this single Savigny cuvée. It has a well-defined, black cherry and raspberry preserve-scented bouquet tinged with sous bois and undergrowth scents. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannin, perfectly judged acidity, bright red and blue fruit with great precision toward the finish. Superb. Forget the modest status indicated on the label because there is a serious wine here.

About This Wine

After none was made in 2013 (thanks to hail!) it's great to have this cuvée back. As per his Puligny cuvée, Leroux's aim here is to craft a wine that reflects both the commune and the vintage overall. To this end he sources fruit from a range of exposures and soil types that run from north to south; Les Peuillets and Hauts Jarrons 1er Cru in the south of the village, Ez Connardises in the heart of the village and Aux Forneaux (villages) in the north. Citing low yields and nigh-perfect fruit, Leroux told us his 2016 Savigny wines are the best he's produced so far, from the finest vintage in Savigny he has seen so far. The 2016 is made from fully de-stemmed fruit with no new wood used in the élevage.
