The 2010 Savigny Les Beaune 1er cru from Louis Max is a both affordable and enjoyable wine. It’s a bit old school … slightly rustic … but genuine and Burgundian in the good sense of the word. The bouquet is semi open, dispalying red fruits and a slightly edgy earthy minerality … notes of red cherries with hints of sweet forest strawberries. On the palate quite weighty for this level with a fine focusing grip from the tannis and the crisp and powerful 2010 acidity. Is displaying fine fruit .. quite transparent and forward … a enjoyable glass of pinot. The 2010s are great and this offers both fine intensity and a nice expression of terroir. Any flaws … at this price – 23€ retail in Denmark – it’s hard to complain .. but is perhaps lacking the ultimate crystaline transparency. What can i say … cheers … it’s drinking quite well.
