Dublere Savigny les Beaune 1er Cru les Vergelesses Blanc 2014
Burghound - A mild touch of reduction shaves the top notes from the citrus and floral-scented nose. Otherwise there is excellent detail and vibrancy to the medium-bodied and lightly stony flavors that terminate in a dry, clean and focused finish. This saline-inflected effort should reward 4 to 7 years of cellaring if desired.
Wine Advocate - The 2014 Savigny les Beaune 1er Cru les Vergelesses Blanc has a delightful bouquet with hints of white chocolate infusing the citrus fruit. The palate is crisp and fresh with a fine line of acidity, quite citric, a little sharp but with a tangible sense of energy and precision on the finish. This is a pretty wine in the making.
This wine is sometimes gold with emerald highlights, sometimes pale straw color. Its nose is lowery and lighthearted. Its bouquet frequently evokes butter and brioche with notes of lemon, grapefruit, and occasionally a touch of minerality. A lively attack helps to make this a clean, straightforward wine -- quite fleshy, persistent, and occasionally with a touch of spice.
Serving suggestions: Its lively and straightforward attack would suit fresh-water fish in white sauce, omelettes, or scrambled eggs, while its rich and unctuous bouquet would deliver an attractive and restful finish. It proves a worthy companion to goat cheeses, Gruyère, Comté, and Cîteaux.
