Savigny-les-Beaune Fouquerand Hospices Beaune 2002

Member Review by Quentin4:

The Colour of this Pinot Noir seems still too deep even after 7 years of maturing. The nose is very upfront and developed, yet attractive with overly pronounced aromas of strawberries and raspberries. On the palate, it shows a good structure with sweet and round edges. The acidity is still a little at the back as I think this wine might need another 6 months to fully develop. The finish is lingering and last longer than expected. A wine to enjoy with some food.

Most of these vineyard plots are located in prestigious appellations. They are nearly all first growths and great growths. Read less
