2002 Maurice Écard Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Jarrons- France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru (1/30/2011)
Smooth. Reddish fruit and cola notes. A bit skunky, which is kind of appealing. Has lost its edge, but not in a good way. Drinking quite nicely right now. My bottle last year seemed more scattered. This one appears to be giving all its gonna give. A nice wine, a nice value. Nothing earthshaking. If you got one. Drink it.
Thanks a lot for the note. I found it interesting in that, at least for my tastes, the 2002 Narbantons from Ecard doesn’t seem at all ready for consumption yet (unlike say 1999, which is in a really nice spot right now). I don’t have experience with the Jarrons, so it could very well be a vineyard characteristic that Narbantons takes longer to mature.
Have not had their Jarrons, but still have one bottle of Ecard '02 SLB Peuillets, which was really drinking well about a year and a half ago. I was thinking of holding the other bottle a few more years to see how it develops.
Any thoughts on if Peuillets is usually considered to be a little longer-lived than Jarrons? Narbantons, Serpentieres?
