Soft menthol and wood notes still allow the expansive earthy and almost entirely wild red berry fruit nose to be appreciated. The supple and seductively textured flavors possess a subtle minerality that continues onto the energetic, detailed and driving finish. This is excellent and the backend firms up quickly to suggest that while this could be enjoyed young, it should also age effortlessly.

The 2015 les Lavieres chez Camus is outstanding as well, as Monsieur Camus commented that the clay in the soil here helped the vines continue to ripen during the period of hydric stress and the grapes were absolutely perfect when we brought them in. The bouquet is a fine, elegant and youthful blend of black cherries, pomegranate, raw cocoa, gamebird, a fine base of soil, just a touch of vanillin oak and a pungent topnote of violets. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and sappy at the core, with excellent minerality, fine-grained tannins and a very long, tangy and seamless finish. A beautiful bottle of Savigny in the making.
