Dark red cherries, sage, mint and spices flesh out in the 2012 Savigny-les-Beaune Clos des Godeaux. A hint of white pepper adds an intriguing top register in this wonderfully energetic Burgundy. Bright acidity and minerality are prominent as they support the fruit. This is a delicious entry-level offering. Drouhin purchased this monopole four years ago. 2014-2020 Rating: 88-89 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com
The 2012 Savigny-les-Beaune Clos des Godeaux already sports an effervescent bouquet with lifted strawberry preserve, raspberry and mushroom scents, hints of vanilla loitering in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet opening of tart cherry and strawberry fruit. Light on its feet with succinct acidity, this is a classy Savigny-les-Beaune from the Drouhin team.

(Drouhin purchased this parcel located between two premier crus in 2005): Bright, moderately saturated cherry-red. Musky aromas of herbs and spices lifted by violet and rose petal. On the palate, red berry, spice and floral flavors are enlivened by saline energy. Finishes with good length. This was being prepared for the bottling.

(a monopole; destemmed). This is also distinctly earthy with plenty of sauvage character adding interest to the cool but ripe red currant aromas. There is good verve to the attractively intense and solidly well-concentrated flavors that display some rusticity on the agreeably complex and persistent finish. 2017+ Rating: 87-89 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com
Monopole. New for them near Lavières and they'd like to buy more in this village. Some evolution and real charm on the nose. Already quite open and with crunchy texture and sufficient acid and tannin. Should have quite a long life of drinkability. 2014-2020 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com
