Jean-Jacques Girard Savigny les Beaune 1er Cru 'Les Peuillets' 2019
Jean-Jacques Girard knows every angled hillside, every rivulet, every cut in the rock, where the sun shines and where the dew settles. He makes several different Savigny 1er Crus and a horizontal tasting in Jean-Jacques' cellars is a master class in the appellation. This Savigny-les Beaune 1er Cru 'Les Peuillets' is supple and lacy, with spicy almost explosive black and red currant fruit. There's an intensity that makes the young fruit charming, but which really shows the structure for aging.
Jean-Jaques Girard Beaune 1er Cru 'Clos du Roi' 2019
Beaune 1er Cru 'Clos du Roi' is, as the name suggests, one of the best parcels in the hills above Beaune. Beaunes can have the spice of Savigny, so the style plays well into Jean-Jacques Girard's hands, but the Clos du Roi also has the oomph of the Corton mountain. Red fruit and spice, great building intensity, round, fleshy and persistent, It's a fist in a velvet glove.
Jean-Jacques Girard Aloxe-Corton 2020
With this Aloxe Corton, Jean-Jacques comes roaring out of his home valley of Savigny les Beaune. Where his Savigny is floral, spicy and elegant up front, the first nose of this Aloxe Corton is powerful, animal. Then it's a mouthful of black fruit, with the elegance rolling in on the mid-palate and sticking around for the finish and the reflection. This is another register for Jean-Jacques Girard, who, you will find, has perfect pitch!
