Domaine Albert Morot, Savigny-lès-Beaune Aux Vergelesses La Bataillère 1er Cru 1991

Morot Savigny Verglesses 1991

A medium garnet red color, threads of ochre towards the rim.  A more assured nose than anticipated.  We expected to be blunted by ‘iron fist taped in a boxing glove’ robustness and animale.  In fact, this is quite refined: less game, forest floor and sous-bois and more lambent, high-toned and vivacious.  Red fruit & citrus palate: rainer cherry, rose hips, pomegranate, freshly honeyed lemon.  Quite substantial: luscious and old-viney.  Ripe, integrated tannins: not a trace of rudeness here.  Very good grip.  Well balanced, with a long, mineral finish.  Over-delivers for Savigny 1er cru and a lovely rouge by any measure.  Now – 2016.
