2017 Savigny Aux Serpentières 1er Cru

Domaine Pierre Guillemot

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.

About Burgundy

map of Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.
