2006 Francois Gay et Fils Savigny Les Beaune

Meet the perfect Springtime red…the 2006 Francois Gay Savigny les Beaune ($20) offers a core of red cherry and strawberry aromas overlain with orange peel, clove and rose notes.  A savory, gamey quality is present, adding to the wine’s complexity and intrigue.  On the palate,the texture is soft with lush fruit, fine tannins and vibrant acidity, giving way to a persistent, lengthy finish.

This wine is an excellent value that is showing beautifully now.  Pair with pan seared duck breast, braised kale and sauteed potatoes.
