Guillemot is one of the best buys in Savigny-les-Beaune and one of our favorite addresses in Savigny, ranking up along the likes of Pavelot and Camus Brochon. This is another classic address, now in its 8th generation producing the same age-worthy and elegant wines that show the individuality of the domaines terroir. There are classic with retention of Savigny's rustic minerality yet pushing towards a more refined style. It's a delicate balance and one that Guillemont has done an excellent job of perfecting over the decades. Les Serpentieres comes from vines that are around 60 years old, producing concentrated wines with a solid core of fruit and herbal nuances. A serious bottle of classic Burgundy that's worth checking out!
Wine Advocate (William Kelley) 92-94 points! "Blossoming in the glass with a rich bouquet of spices, cherries and cassis, complemented by enticing bass notes of licorice, grilled squab and dark chocolate, the 2018 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Aux Serpentières is medium to full-bodied, layered and enveloping, its deep core of fruit framed by velvety tannins and lively acids. This is a gourmand, dramatic Serpentières that will come into its own with a decade of bottle age."
