Le Grappin Savigny Les Beaune Rouge 2020 75cl


Tasting Note

A fine vigorous purple with significant dark berry fruit concentration. The palate offers a rich succulent fruit with a lovely crunch to bring it back into line at the finish. Wild forest fruits says Andrew. 91 points, 4 stars - Jasper Morris MW


From a 60-year-old parcel in “Aux Fournaux”. The vineyard is located at the base of the slope providing better sunlight interception and drainage than most, meaning the wine has fine definition and weight for a villages appellation wine. “Aux Fournaux” is also at the junction with Pernand-Vergelesses and Aloxe-Corton, with racy fruits from the former and rocky tannins from the later.


Le Grappin began in 2011 following Andrew Nielson's five-year journey working for some of the world's great Pinot Noir and Chardonnay artisans in California, Central Otago, Burgundy and the Yarra Valley. His, and his wife Emma's, vision for Le Grappin is to seek out special sites in the over-looked, under-appreciated reaches of Burgundy. They seek out viticulteurs who tend their vines throughout the year with exceptional care and attention, to give the grapes the best opportunity to shine. Their job is to ensure the wine reaches it's true potential; working by hand, with small lots, giving each wine as much care and attention as our viticulteurs have paid to the vines.
