The way people go on about Pinot Noir, you'd think it was the only grape worthy of fermentation. "Pinot Noir, I'm over you," you think. "What do you have that Malbec doesn't?" Then you come across a bottle like this miraculous Savigny-les-Beaune, and every other grape pales by comparison. Notes of black tea leaf, fresh bing cherries, and hints of nutty wild mushrooms sizzling in olive oil.
