1989 Chenu-Lefebvre Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Lavières

$89.99
1989 Chenu-Lefebvre Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Lavières
After visiting and tasting with Clement and Christophe, we were able to get more of this red Burgundy gem but these are the last of the stock at the domaine. With Burgundy's pricing these days, especially on the new releases, it is nice to get something ready to drink at a price that doesn't break the bank from a great vintage. 1989 can be an excellent vintage for Red Burgundy, and these bottles of Lavieres have stood the test of time. Wines from Savigny are typically more rustic, extremely long-lived, and beautiful with age.
Christophe (pictured in the middle) and Clement (pictured on the left) taste all the back stock and record all the bottles because the corks are in bad shape from lying in the cold, wet cellar for several decades. They discard any bad bottles (sometimes it will be 1/2 the stock) and add a few drops of sulfur to help preserve the good bottles before they add the new cork, ensuring that the bottles they sell are in the best condition possible.
The '89 Lavieres still shows lovely fruit with classic matured red Burgundy notes of sous bois, mushroom, and earth, with a medium body. It is a well-balanced, textbook-aged Burgundy that is a great deal at this pricing for a premier cru over 30 years of age from one of Savignys top vineyards. These are some of the only bottles available in the world and a rare find at this pricing. This is ready to drink now and is highly recommended for those who love older Burgundy or wines in general but are typically turned away by the cost. These are some of the best older buys since Robert Ampeau and highly reccomended.
