Savigny 2012, Génot-Boulanger

This domaine was founded in 1974 and now has 22 hectares. Some very smart buying of Burgundy vineyards in the lost decades of the 1970s and 1980s until people woke up in the mid-1990s to the value of the terroir. Tasted at the Génot-Boulanger château in Meursault this Savigny blanc is fresh, and citrus dominated. On the palate there is green apple, its linear and bright with good length. Mineral, very lively. Could be Chablis, noted one taster. Despite the 12 months ageing in barrels and 25% new oak its surprisingly tart. Scores 18/30 for a Savigny blanc.
