Tasting Notes

Ripe and concentrated red and black fruit shows poise and restraint. The palate is open and perfumed with bright red fruit, roses and violets with savoury undercurrents of tea leaf and brown spices. The fruit is encased by velvety tannins and lifted by a lovely freshness and a long, concentrated finish. Drink from 2021.

Reviews & Scores

The 2016 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Vergelesses has a well-defined bouquet with scents of blackberry, hints of blueberry and crushed rose petals, a distant scent of cold stone emerging with time. I would have just liked a little more precision perhaps, but the aromatics certainly have charm. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, more structured and austere than the Fournaux with a strong, brine-tinged finish. This will require three or four years in barrel to smooth the edges, but again, this has good potential.
90-92 points, Neal Martin

A wine with bright red berry fruit aromas with savoury, herbal characters and an attractive lavender note. The palate is refreshing and bright with raspberry and wild berry fruit flavours and hints of dried herbs balanced by fine tannins. This is a wine with plenty of character and potential to age. Drink from 2015.


The 2019 Bourgogne Rouge "Cuvée Maison Dieu" comes from vines just under those of Château de Pommard, close to the roundabout. It has a generous bouquet with red cherries and raspberry fruit. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, crunchy red fruit with a slightly terse finish. Neil Martin
