Tasting notes

26/01/2011

I'm not always a fan of Bize's wines, but this a respondent Savigny. The nose shows opulent cherry fruit, while the palate is rich and concentrated, with firm tannins. It%u2019s a robust style but not rustic. It has ample personality and vigour, and exhibits force and drive rather than elegance. Drink 2014-2022. (17.5 points )
