Savigny Peuillets, Domaine Jean Pierre Guyon 2017

Tasting Notes

The 2017 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Peuillets wafts from the glass with notes of black cherries, raspberries, dark berries, smoke and spices, its 30% new oak already entirely integrated. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, dense and concentrated, with a chunky, foursquare profile that will reward bottle age.

William Kelley, Wine Advocate, January 2019

Imperial purple with striking density. There is a rich striking feel to the fruit too, plus a touch more CO2, some firm tannins behind. The yield was just under 50 hl/ha, but no feeling of dilution as this is balanced, succulent and the fruit lives perfectly with both acidity and tannins. Tasted: November 2018

Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy, November 2018

Bright ruby colour. Pure and focused red Pinot fruit with flecks of wood smoke on the nose. The palate is pithy and rich, with good bones to build structure. The fruit is airy yet intense, bringing a focused sensation and a classic structure. Fine, with cool, ripe red fruits unfurling through the mid palate, the finish is long and lightly earhty. This is very fine and classically Burgundian with just enough polish.
