Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Guettes, 2012, Domaine A. F. Gros
A cool and restrained nose blends notes of gentle earth and floral aromas with red currant and plum scents. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension to the mineral-inflected and solidly well-concentrated flavors that terminate in a moderately austere and well-balanced finish.
This will require at least 5 to 7 years to be approachable and up to a decade to arrive at its peak.
