The 2017 Domaine du Prieure Savigny les Beaune ‘Les Gollardes’ is another stunning Red Burgundy find, This is Red Burg done incredibly right and coming to you at a more than fair price. There’s a lot to like about this elegant, complex, and satisfying Pinot Noir. And it comes from a wonderful, third generation, family-run winery. Even better, the vines in this vineyard are over 50 years old!
This 1.9 acre parcel was planted in the late 1960’s, and the soils here are rocky and well-drained. The Maurice’s subscribe to a sustainable model of farming — they only use chemical pesticides and fungicides when absolutely necessary. Additionally, they hand harvest and sort all of their grapes, they ferment with native yeasts, and they age in primarily older barrels (10% new). In a good year like 2017, they’ll make 400 cases of this wine.
To me, this is the essence of Red Burgundy. There’s a wonderful combination of fruit, earth, and spice. And like all great Red Burgs, the texture is silky and seamless. I pick up notes of Morello cherry, dark currant, forest floor, and brown spices. Medium-bodied and concentrated in flavor, it glides across the palate effortlessly, finishing long and harmoniously. It’s one of those wines that’s pretty easy to knock back, but it’s also interesting. Enjoy this one with classic French bistro fare — steak frites, roast chicken, even salmon. It’s incredibly versatile at the dinner table
