‘Profound’. ‘Extraordinary’. ‘Dynamic’. These are the words people use to describe ‘one of the greatest red wine vintages for a generation’. Savigny Les Beaunes from a great house like Jadot is always full and dense, and this shows both the cherry – that’s typical of the village – as well as the red fruit – that is typical of the vintage. Savigny has the power to work with beef as well as the fleshiness to complement roast game birds.
