The new release of old vine bottling of Savart l’Accomplie is composed of a blend of
eighty percent pinot noir and twenty percent chardonnay. Eighty-five percent of the vins clairs for this wine are barrel-fermented and do not go through malo. The wine delivers excellent precision in the bouquet, which wafts from the glass in a fine blend of apple, white peach, fresh baked bread, chalky soil tones, a touch of almond and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full and racy, with a rock solid core, great mineral drive, elegant mousse and plenty of cut and grip on the very long, perfectly balanced and nascently complex finish. This will age beautifully, but is not all that hard to drink out of the blocks! Fine, fine juice that is a touch oaky out of the blocks, but which will absorb this component effortlessly with some time in the cellar. Rated JG93+.
