Discover the Savigny-lès-Beaune appellation
The Savigny-lès-Beaune AOC is located between the mountains of Corton and the city of Beaune, where the hills surrounding the Rhoin River are a bit flatter. In the northern part, there are Pinot Noir grape vines growing in limestone and clay soils (very few white wines are made here, as a matter of fact). The red wines are usually very colorful and full-bodied, although very soft in the mouth. You still need to wait a few years to better appreciate the fruit (mainly strawberry and blueberry).
The southern hillside of the town of Savigny has soils made of sand and gravel, which is just perfect for dynamic and pure white wines. This 350 hectares vineyard is the actual starting point of the Côte de Beaune. The Savigny-lès-Beaune appellation can produce up to 17,000 hectoliters of red and white wines. 300 hectares for the red wines (129 of which are classified as Premier Cru) and 45 hectares for the white wines (9 of which are also Premier Cru).
