Jean-Jacques Girard Bourgogne Rouge 2017
Jean-Jacques Girard's family has been making wine in the Savigny-les Beaune valley for 500 years, so it's not surprising to find that his regional appellation Bourgogne Rouge drinks like a little Savigny. Blackcurrant freshness, a touch of earth subsoil, a supple, easy structure and bull's-eye line on through the whole from the attack to the finish.
Jean-Jacques Girard Savigny les Beaune Red 2017
Jean-Jacques Girard's Village appellation Savigny-les Beaune, is aged for 15 months in oak. But you would never believe it to taste it! Granted, the color is deep cherry red, as are the fruits, but this Savigny is supple, graceful, full of finesse with an enjoyable palette of fruit bouncing around the mid-palate and ending on freshness. If you want a snapshot of what Pinot Noir does in the Savigny valley, here's your wine.
Jean-Jacques Girard Beaune 1er Cru 'Clos du Roi' 2017
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 has the oomph of the Corton mountain. Red fruit ans spice, great building intensity, round, fleshy and persistent, It's a fist in a velvet glove.
