One of the world’s greatest red Burgundy values, with a track record that would make many grands crus jealous, this flagship bottling from the Guillemot family of Savigny-lès-Beaune is a stalwart wine in the KLWM portfolio. Their premier cru Serpentières vineyard stands out as a Savigny of superb elegance, complexity, and profoundness. It exemplifies the grandeur of bouquet that can be attained from a wine with such a seemingly light touch. Blackberries, herbs, dark chocolate, juniper… all come together in a multilayered wine of beautiful balance that deserves to be aged for a few years. During a recent visit, the Guillemots proudly opened a 1947 from two barrels their great-grandfather chose to bottle rather than sell for a new car. Someone gave him the sage advice that the wine would last longer than the car.
