Domaine Tollot-Beaut Savigny-Lès-Beaune 1er Cru Savigny-Champ-Chevrey 2017
This great offering from the Toilet Beaut family is a classic example of how their two Savigny vineyards perform. Champs Chevrey is a Mmonopole - that is unusually for Burgundy, they are the only owners. It is always slower to show that Les Lavieres so in youth it appears tighter and more mineral. This 2017 will soon be starting to open with red fruits dominant above the mineral under-carriage. It's always worth the wait and this will amply repay those who are prepared to cellar it for another 5 years but it will be good to go at the end of the year. (2020)
