Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru Les Guettes comes from three parcels totaling 1.5 hectares of about 40-year-old vines occupying slightly deeper soils, although we are only talking 30cm or so before we hit the limestone bedrock. It has a slightly pinched bouquet at the moment with high-toned raspberry and cassis fruit - quite floral in nature but for me, not in possession of the breeding of the Les Serpentieres '11. The palate is much better, offering a Vosne-like silkiness and wonderful harmony that is entrancing. Again, there is a sorbet-like freshness and sense of symmetry on the finish that is wonderful. Hopefully the aromatics will develop with bottle age, so I would afford this 18 months in the cellar. Drink 2015-2022.
