West Palm Wines is celebrating its 18th year in business this month! And what better way to do that than offer our customers, who made the last 18 years possible, a ridiculous deal on a yummy Burgundy. The only problem is I only have 5 CASES AVAILABLE. They are in stock and our price, $27btl by the case, is $20btl LESS than our competitors on winesearcher. But don’t wait! These 5 cases will disappear fast!
Savigny is a pretty village in a small valley north of Beaune. The vineyard of Les Serpentières has a very good due south exposure. Names were often given to vineyards, early in the Middle Ages, for the fauna or vegetation that could be observed: partridges, oak trees, snakes (“serpents” in French). This is how “Serpentières” received its name and has kept it ever since.. The soil is marl and limestone from the Bathonian age; light soil with a reddish coloration, strewn with sharp stones. The average age of the vines is 50 plus year

Really good Premier Cru Red Burgundy for under $30 per bottle is not something you find everyday. I have been drinking and enjoying this wine for the last several years and purchased it several times…..but the last 5 cases have arrived and after that no more. This wine reminds me a Morey St Denis. Aromas of mushrooms and truffles mix with ripe dark berry fruit with a hint of sauvage. Lush yet focused mouthfeel leads to a palate with good energy and finesse. Very fine tannins and that nice balance between youth and maturity end in a poised, delicious and persistent finish.
