Henri de Villamont, Savigny-Les-Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Guettes

£40.27
Occupying an impressive nineteenth-century building in Savigny-Lès-Beaune, Henri de Villamont is a medium-sized producer that combines an enviable domaine (they are particularly strong in Chambolle-Musigny) with a meticulously sourced négociant range. The cuverie was updated with the latest equipment less than ten years ago, and underneath there is ample storage for barrels in the beautiful double-height cellar. These features give the winemaker flexibility and precision, resulting in excellent expression of the various terroirs on offer. These include some particularly well-sited vineyards: Auxey-Duresses Les Hautés borders Meursault Vireuils, for example, while Chambolle-Musigny Les Baudes lies just below Bonnes-Mares. In each case, because the former is so much less famous, the value for money is exceptional.

2015 vintage. Harvest is 100% destemmed. Vatting lasts 25 days and the maturing is both in barrels during 11 months and in vat during 3 months. Deep and bright crimson in colour, this Savigny-lès-Beaune has a powerful and elegantly perfumed bouquet of blackberry, currant, sherry and humus. This is a full-bodied wine with supple tannins, soft acidity and beautiful length. Its earthy character will develop with ageing. Harvested by hand. The age of the vines is 25 years. Pairings: Red meats, gan wild fowl, mildly flavoured cheeses...
