Henri de Villamont based near the village of Savigny-lès-Beaune are not an especially well known house, but they are, in fact, a sizeable producer and have some prestiguous cuvées to their name. This, their entry level red, is aged partly in oak and parrly in stainless steel. And the result is spot on, there’s good depth of fruit here, some spice and plenty of fresh acidity. It’s medium-bodied with fine tannins and good crunchy berry fruits.
