2017, Domaine Chandon de Briailles, SAVIGNY-LES-BEAUNE, 1er Cru, 'Les Lavieres'

$82

The 2017 Savigny-lès-Beaune Les Lavières 1er Cru, already in bottle, has a vibrant, spicy, rose petal and violet bouquet that is even more intense than the Aux Fournaux. The chalk/limestone terroir really shows through here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. It is masculine and structured, with a lovely marine element tincturing the dark berry fruit toward the chalky finish. Excellent. 92/100 Neal Martin, Vinous.

Earth and sauvage-inflected dark berry fruit aromas. The attractively intense medium weight flavours exude a subtle minerality on the sneaky long finish 89/100 Burghound.
