Overview of the Wine
The Guillemot family has worked Savigny-lès-Beaune vines for eight generations (!) and produces wines with classic Burgundian finesse and balance, all while leaving us a reminder of Savigny’s rustic character. But do not be fooled into thinking that this means they lack aging potential; the Guillemots are very proud of their old wines and thankfully have the foresight to set aside a good supply and follow their wines’ development over the years.
There was not a single tired bottle in the bunch. We challenge anyone to find a better deal on Burgundies that are built to last like these!

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Les Jarrons is the domaine’s most tangy and supple, bursting with that juicy griotte (sour cherry) quality we love about Savigny, and have come to expect from Guillemot’s most elegant, time-honored style of Pinot.
91-93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Another cuvée that was showing especially well was the 2018 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Jarrons, a lovely wine in the making that exhibits scents of spices, plums, woodsmoke, raspberries and candied peel. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and textural, with a rich and charming core of fruit, ripe tannins and juicy acids.
