The 2016 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Guettes is limited to six barrels this vintage (fortunately, there are 17 in 2017, demonstrating how severely this vineyard was damaged by frost). It has a timid bouquet at first but eventually unfurls to reveal a mixture of red and black fruit—mulberry and crushed strawberry, a light marine influence developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied and underpinned by fine, almost filigree tannin. I appreciate the elegance of this Savigny that survived despite the frost damage, and there is plenty of vivacity and tension on the finish. Excellent. Drink: 2020-2030 (Dec17)
