Henri de Villamont Savigny Les Beaune Le Village Monopole 2017 3 litre bottle
These are 3 litre bottles....the equivalent of 4 "regular" bottles.
Vinification is done in vat during 25 days. Maturing is carried out in oak barrels during 11 months and in vat during 6 months.
This wine shows a bright crimson colour with garnet-red reflects. Its pleasant nose displays a powerful bouquet of ripe fruit such as cherries and raspberries. Its delicate and fleshy mouth is enhanced by silky and generous tannins, soft acidity and roundness.
From a region in Burgundy with a checkered past and without the history of its more famous cousins, the wines from Savigny are some of the best valued wines in Burgundy. I will go so far as to say, at this moment in time, Savigny-les-Beaune provides the very best bang for your buck in all of Burgundy.
A small parcel of a vineyard close to the Villamont winery has produced a luscious wine with ripe apricot and pineapple flavors. The softness is mitigated by a more assertive acidity at the end. Drink from 2020.
