The 2008 Gravains was very much on form and simply singing at the time of my visit. The bouquet is deep complex and very very fine in '08 as it jumps from the glass in a blend of pure black cherries dark berries dark chocolate complex soil tones orange zest and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is full-bodied suave and beautifully balanced with ripe tannins impeccable focus and outstanding length and grip on the classy and very transparent finish. A superb bottle.

Fresh plum and plum distillate tinged with ginger and white pepper pungently scent the Pavelot 2008 Savigny-les-Beaune Gravains and these are allied on a bright lean yet phenolically-refined palate with stimulating salinity. There is a levity here that compliments the wine's ethereally distilled fruit aspect and its almost citrus-like brightness. This finishes with spicy saline tartly red-fruited and subtly chalky persistence. Opinions are bound to divide over this instance of 2008 displaying white wine-like virtues. I suspect that it will remain vigorous for more than a decade. --- David Schildknecht

Note: from a .60 ha parcel where two-thirds of the vines are more than 70+ years of age. Interestingly this is not quite as complex as the Guettes but it's more elegant with notably ripe aromas of cassis plum and black cherry that dissolve seamlessly into mineral-driven firm and delicious middle weight flavors that possess fine length and an almost delicate quality to the finish. A Savigny of finesse.
