Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru Les Narbantons 2014 750ml
Cote de Beaune, Burgundy, France
Wine Advocate 88
The 2014 Savigny-les-Beaune 1er les Narbartons comes from 53-year-old vines is matured in 30% to 40% new oak. It has a clean and pure bouquet: red cherries mixed with strawberry and dried rose petals. The palate is medium-bodied with a slight meatiness on the entry, a savory style Savigny with respectable depth, the acidity well judged, if just pulling up a little swiftly on the finish. Still, this has good depth - rustic but charming.
Character of the wine
Savigny-les-Beaune “Premier Cru” Les Narbantons reds have an intense colour which is more vivid than that of the "Villages" appellations. Their bouquet is elegant and powerful, dominated by red fruits. The “Premiers Crus”, concentrated and full of tannins, combine character, finesse and elegance. These wines are noted for their finesse and can be drunk while still very young, although those from the good years reach their true excellence when fully mature.
