2018 Pierre Guillemot Vieilles Vignes Savigny-les-Beaune
Winemaker's Notes: There’s no secret recipe for making a great regional wine, but the Guillemots swear by blending Savigny vieilles vignes from Les Planchots de la Champagne along the Rhoin River with fruit from neighboring Chorey-lès-Beaune. The declassified berries add a touch of cinnamon and warming kirsch notes for an extra boost of local character and typicity. It’s as pretty a Pinot you’ll find in both style and price.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - ""The 2018 Savigny-lès-Beaune Vieilles Vignes is a beauty, wafting from the glass with aromas of cherries, raspberries, spices and grilled squab. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, it's supple and succulent, displaying considerable charm. Guillemot opted to vinify this cuvée with 40% whole clusters this year.""
