Shy and a bit spicy on the nose. Slow to emerge smoke, earth and rhubarb notes lend this a less ripe and slight chunky tone. Soft and bright in the mouth, this is rather lacy and pure with red berry fruit. It is a bit on the simple side, but as balanced and fresh as this is, it is attractive. 88 pts

Sweet and sappy on the nose with very spicy fruit. Still a bit rigid in the mouth with good acids and just a touch of tannin sticking out. Still youthful but not particularly exciting. 87pts

Nice bottle sweetness and limestone minerality here with a gamy, smoky edge to the fading fruit. Very friendly in the mouth with nice freshness and fine balance. Gently sweet and still surprisingly vibrant. A pleasant surprise 88pts

SG$50 in Singapore. One of the biggest rip off I ever had.

This may be the most complex of all the wines we tasted this evening as you expect from a Grand Cru. Scents of violet, lavender, lemon, mineral, cinnamon and ginger all made appearances at various times as I kept returning to the glass to find something new. Citrus, spice and mineral played on my tongue along with an intense acidity that needs time to mellow, yet the wine itself seemed very light on the palate. It will very definitely reward those patient enough to let it reach full maturity.

After some decanting and swirling, the "funky" notes opened up to a fresh, lovely pinot nose of rich berry fruit like strawberry, raspberry, cranberry and some nice hints of spice and earth as well. Richly textured and well balanced, it stood up to a range of food from dinner. Food versatile and well rounded. Very enjoyable.

pale straw, apple pear and un-toasted oak with undernote of mushroom on nose. medium light body, medium finish. clean but not distinct. As an aside, 1/2 ounce of this wine spilled on my laptop screen killed the display--so it is strong stuff.

This wine should meet the expectation of most wine enthusiasts familiar with the wines of this Beaune Village: candied almond might be one way to describe the nose (with a certain astringency on the olfactory nerve). Entry is pleasant and smooth with some residual alcohol on the palate - but not too distracting. This is a well made, clean long-finishing wine. Recommended if obtainable.

Since 1731, the family Bouchard have have devoted themselves to creating wines that are the true expression of Burgundy's many terroirs. The 2010 Pouilly Fuisse is an excellent representation of the region and and outstanding value.

A more elegant though still very clearly reflective of a classic Savigny nose, speaks of plum, dark berry fruit, stone and plenty of the typical Savigny earth.

Medium red. Wild musky aromas of smoke leather and tobacco with red fruits in the deep background. Then surprisingly tight and chewy in the mouth in a distinctly masculine style with berry and spice flavors currently cut off by substantial dusty tannins. Good intensity and energy here but a touch rustic. 88+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Very pale, green-tinged color. Captivating high-pitched aromas of lavender, herbs and dusty stone. Rich on entry, giving a dense, fine-grained, almost sweet impression, then surprising acidity and minerality enliven the middle palate. The finish conveys a slightly tannic impression but remains smooth and suave, not to mention very long. This classy Chevalier will need time to express itself...94" IWC 09/11
