Domaine Chenu, Savigny-les-Beaune Blanc 2008
Domaine Chenu Savigny Blanc 2008
As with all White Burgundy, this barrel fermented wine is made from 100% Chardonnay. In our cellars it has aged beautifully, and tasted again in August 2014, it is so fresh that you would have no idea it was six years old! It has a gentle toasted brioche and lemon zest nose, while on the palate it is very elegant, with flavours of apples and honey, a hint of vanilla and lemon zest. It finishes long with vibrant mineral acidity. Lovely to drink now, but it will still continue to develop and become more complex over the next three years.
