Dom Vincent Girardin Savigny-les-Beaune ‘Les Peuillets’ 1999

Mid depth robe, just amber on the edge. Lots of meat on the nose – roast beef, and earthy fruit comes through in the glass, dark red fruits but not much cherry. Palate balanced and elegant, with the fruit there: ripe red fruits, plums and there’s the cherry. Moreish and delicious with a long finish.

Cotes de Beaune, Burgundy, France
