Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru "Clos des Guettes" 2006, AF Gros
This 2006 Savigny rouge has a glorious ripe nose of cherries, red plums, blood orange and a soupcon of raspberry or cherry liqueur. A high sweetness from the fruit, smells like high sugar content. Wonderful mature pinot flavours: plum, cherry and apple twined together with a wrapping of rounded oak tannins that give a slight astringency at the end. A lovely, lively wine.
