The 2015 les Lavières chez Camus is outstanding as well, as Monsieur Camus commented that "the clay in the soil here helped the vines continue to ripen during the period of hydric stress and the grapes were absolutely perfect when we brought them in." The bouquet is a fine, elegant and youthful blend of black cherries, pomegranate, raw cocoa, gamebird, a fine base of soil, just a touch of vanillin oak and a pungent topnote of violets. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and sappy at the core, with excellent minerality, fine-grained tannins and a very long, tangy and seamless finish. A beautiful bottle of Savigny in the making. 2023-2070.
