2014 Michel Gay Savigny Les Beaune Serpentieres PC
Michel Gay began in 1992 after he and his brother split up their century old family estate and decided to go it alone. Beginning with a meager 6.5 hectares in 92, the domaine has grown a bit to just over 10 hectares today. In 2000, the fifth generation winemaker, Sébastien Gay returned to the domaine following his studies in Beaune and immediately set about improving things.
The first thing Sébastien did was to eliminate all herbicides in the vineyards and convert to an organic approach. He lives in his vineyards and tends each vine with exacting detail. The results were immediately evident with some sensational 2003’s and with each successive vintage the quality continues to improve here. In 2008, Sébastien invested in the domaine’s first sorting table and the quality again was reflected in beautifully balanced wines that year. He has since added a second sorting table and now the harvest sees the two tables in action with a dozen people meticulously sorting each bunch and berry to ensure only the top quality fruit makes the grade. In addition to severe sorting at harvest, Sébastien has shown that he will only bottle the wines he deems up to his family name’s standard and anything that is not is sold to négociants.
Deep cherry, purple with garnet hues, then a bouquet of black and red berries (blackcurrant, cherry, raspberry) and flowers (violet). The body is discreetly tannic, fleshy. It preserves its fruit. Roundness and volume, balance and power in just proportions often evoke cherries with a beautiful elegance.
