The 2018 Savigny-lès-Beaune Les Lavières 1er Cru comes from a 3.9-hectare south-facing vineyard on clay-rich soils over chalky rock. It has a clean, pure bouquet of perfumed black cherries, wild strawberry, blood orange and brown spice aromas that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity and gentle grip. The compact, rather sinewy finish needs time to mellow. Fine.
