The commune of Savigny-lès-Beaune is in the north of the Côte de Beaune and produces 90% red wines. The vineyards lie at 220 meters to 360 meters in altitude on infertile chalk soil that may be gravely or stony. The Pinot Noir grapes are fermented in vats for up to one month, and then the wine is matured in oak barrels for 12 to 15 months before bottling.
Often described as feminine, this wine has elegant aromas and flavors of morello cherry, black currant and raspberry, with a light, fine structure. It will cellar nicely for five to eight years.
