Savigny- Lavieres 1er Cru    2017      $39
John Gilman 93 points

 The 2017 les Lavières from Domaine Camus-Bruchon is absolutely superb and one of the most elegant wines produced in the village this year. The bouquet is pure and complex, offering up a scents of red and black cherries, red plums, violets, a touch of cocoa powder, nutskin, chalky soil tones, vanillin oak and Savigny spices. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and focused, with a lovely, sappy core of fruit, beautiful soil inflection, fine-grained tannins and a long, tangy and complex finish that closes with impressive lift and bounce. (Drink between 2025-2065)

A moderately toasty nose reluctantly offers up notes of forest floor, earth and humus-inflected red and dark currant scents. The sleek, delicious and generously proportioned flavors possess a relatively refined mouth feel while the solidly persistent finish is a bit less youthfully austere and not quite as structured as well. This too is really quite good and worth considering. (Drink starting 2025)

Savigny- Narbantons 1er Cru    2017      $39
John Gilman 93 points

 The 2017 Narbantons from Monsieur Camus was raised in about thirty-five percent new oak, as there is one, new, six hundred liter cask, five older barrels and one new barrel utilized in the cuvée. The wine has turned out beautifully, delivering a fine aromatic constellation of pomegranate, red and black cherries, lovely spice tones, dark soil, bonfire, venison, vanillin oak and a touch of orange peel in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full, sappy and superbly focused, with lovely backend mineral drive, fine-grained tannins and excellent length and grip on the poised and nascently complex finish. An excellent Narbantons in the making. (Drink between 2026-2065)

This too is restrained and it requires aggressive swirling to reveal a layered mix of plum, red cherry, raspberry and floral nuances trimmed in subtle wood influence. The delicious and equally vibrant medium weight flavors do not possess quite the same mid-palate density before concluding in a mildly austere and warm finish. This is delicious but not quite as complete as the Gravains and Lavières. (Drink starting 2025)

Savigny- Gravains 1er Cru    2017      $39
John Gilman 92+ points

 The 2017 Gravains from Monsieur Camus was raised in fifty percent new oak this year, which is higher than normal for this bottling, but all of the new wood was the aforementioned five hundred liter barrels, so the impression of oakiness in the wine is as it always is with the smaller percentage of new 228 liter casks in past vintages. Guillaume noted this year that Gravains has a very strong vein of limestone in it and the soils are very similar to those in Corton-Charlemagne, which is the primary reason many vignerons with parcels here have them planted to chardonnay. The 2017 rouge from Guillaume is excellent, wafting from the glass in a fine blend of red and black cherries, pigeon, a complex base of chalky soil, woodsmoke, Savigny spice tones and a discreet framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and more reserved in profile than the old vine villages bottlings, with a lovely core of fruit, excellent backend mineral drive, ripe tannins and a long, tangy and nascently complex finish. This will be lovely. (Drink between 2025-2065)

A whiff of wood toast and menthol are present on the more complex and restrained aromas of red currant, plum, earth and pretty floral nuances. There is both an attractive vibrancy and good volume to the lightly stony medium weight flavors that exhibit good focus on the bitter cherry-inflected and youthfully austere finish. This is textbook Gravains. (Drink starting 2027)
