Ecard recently acquired another hectare of Savigny-Les-Beaune Les Serpentieres from a family member, bringing the estate's total acreage in this vineyard to four hectares. It is bright ruby-colored and offers aromas of sweet red cherries. Gorgeous and sumptuous layers of succulent red fruits can be found in this medium-to-full-bodied, velvety, delineated and broad wine. It has the structure for aging, but who will be able to keep their hands off this beauty? Anticipated maturity: 1999-2005. Maurice Ecard, the owner and highly-talented winemaker of this estate, bottled (fined but unfiltered) all his 1996s in September, 1997, just barely 12 months after the harvest. He describes the vintage as "supple and aromatic, perfect to drink while waiting for the 1995s." (PR)
