What the Geeks are Drinking

Esoteric wine making mainstream moves


« Prev Next » 3 of 6

Since it may seem as though we're talking about the same thing, let's move on with Savigny, which is in fact a region in Burgundy and has nothing to do with Savagnin. Savigny les Beaune, as the name implies, is located in Burgundy's Cote de Beaune and is being touted as Burgundy's last great value. The wines have been values for years and it's somewhat ironic that they are being recognized by a more mainstream audience as values just s they begin to sell at a premium, because they are such great values you see.

The truth is that all Burgundy has become so expensive that even value burgundy can now regularly top $50 a bottle, but the truth is that the best of Savigny competes with wines twice their price. Savigny is a large appellation, and as is often the case its size is a bit of a handicap as the boundaries of Savigny enclose great and ordinary vineyards. Stick with the top producers though and you'll be drinking some absolutely compelling Burgundy at what are still value prices. In style the wines of Savigny tend to fall between the more elegant wines of Volnay and the wines of Pommard with their rustic weight.
