Professional Ratings: 92 Burghound.com, 90 The Wine Advocate
Region: Burgundy, France
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Item no. 117590
The wine has medium-deep color and powerful aromas and flavors of black currant and cherry. This feminine, supple, finely structured wine will develop in the bottle for 7 to 10 years.
Initially this was quite closed but with 30 minutes or so of air, the red berry, stone and earth-infused nose becomes attractively perfumed. The nicely rich but well-detailed middle weight flavors possess good mid-palate extract and good vibrancy on the delicious, firm and ripe finish. There is a trace of austerity but this should mature into a lovely effort.
Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points
The 2009 Savigny-Les-Beaune Clos de Guettes is deep, dark and polished, particularly in its tannins. The high altitude site confers quite a bit of elegance to the expressive dark fruit. This is another very promising wine. The finish is round, creamy and quite generous. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. 88-90 Points
