Domaine A.F. Gros Savigny Les Beaune Clos des Guettes 2012, Cote de Beaune, Cote d'Or, Burgundy, France
100% Pinot Noir with 16 months in oak.
Powerful yet elegant bouquet, predominantly cherry, blackcurrant, raspberry changing to a mostly strawberry aroma after a few years. Supple, discreetly tannic and low in acidity, the wine has a light, fine structure. Allow to develop over time.
"The 2012 Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Guettes is the same age as Mathias, 23-years old and were planted with selection massale that has a proclivity to produce small grapes. This was a monopole up until 1995, when a majority of the vineyard was sold to Louis Jadot and a small part Domaine Dubois. It has a very attractive bouquet with fine delineation: dark cherries, minerals and faint marine influences coming through. The palate is finely balanced with light but tensile tannins. There is a pleasant citric note here with a tightly wound, linear, clean and fresh finish. Very fine." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 91/100
