Domaine Pierre Guillemot Savigny Aux Serpentieres, Burgundy 2017
VINTAGE : 2017
COUNTRY : France
REGION/APPELLATION : France, Burgundy
VARIETAL : Pinot Noir
The Guillemot family has worked Savigny-lès-Beaune vines for eight generations and produces wines with classic Burgundian finesse and balance, all while leaving us a reminder of Savigny’s rustic character. But do not be fooled into thinking that this means they lack aging potential; the Guillemots are very proud of their old wines and thankfully have the foresight to set aside a good supply and follow their wines’ development over the years. We challenge anyone to find a better deal on Burgundies that are built to last like these!
The Serpentières is arguably the quintessential Guillemot cuvée, which makes sense because it is the vineyard where they own the most land (4.2 acres is a blessing when it comes to premier cru Burgundy). This generous, seductive rouge has a long life ahead. Open it now or in three decades.
