Domaine Maurice Écard et Fils, Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Cloux 1999

Ecard Savigny Cloux 1999

Fifteen years on tasting.

A couple ticks lighter and less tannic than the Jarrons.  Hints of animal.  Ripe, pristine fruit.  Not a hint of cookery and shaded to red: beetroot, cranberry, rainer cherry.  Lithe musculature; more angular-lined than the Jarrons.  Dramatic acidity, without astringency.  Nuanced, sienna finish.  Doesn’t have the strength of the Jarrons but it speaks for Burgundy more eloquently.  Now – 2017.
