J Drouhin Savigney-Les-Beaune 2002 (review)

84 points

From Burgundy, France. 13%

Humble burgundy from a great vintage -a combination that in this case is pretty nice drinking. 2002 in Burgundy (and in South Australia) appears to be a terribly good vintage.

Approachable now, but I think better with some time – how much is hard to judge, probably a year, though this wine just might surprise and live a while.

Warm and soft, yet sappy still. Not very concentrated and yet able to match with fairly strongly flavoured food.
