Domaine Pierre Guillemot Savigny-Les-Beaune Blanc "Dessus Les Gollardes" Burgundy
Tasting a wine like is a reminder that no matter how long we have been at this wine gig, there is always something new to learn. Comprised of 80% Pinot Blanc and just 20% Chardonnay, which I did not even know was allowed in Burgundy! Here you find out that terroir is a real thing because no matter what this wine is made from, it tastes of its birthplace. Ripe with apple and pear, loads of fall spice and white flowers all over the palate. Dense, weighty but hardly over done and a finish that goes on for minutes after the wine has been swallowed.
