Description
  • Savigny-les-Beaune Blanc is an extremely rare wine counting for no more than 3.5% of the total production of the village. The best slopes for Savigny-les-Beaune blanc are to be found 10 minutes drive north of Beaune at the western end of the appellation going towards the tiny village of Boulliand. It is on these upper vineyard sites that the Chardonnay thrives. Some growers compare these higher vineyards and their soil content to those of the famed Corton-Charlemagne.

Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    This lovely wine spent 12 months being matured in oak barrels and has a deeper gold colour and exotic nose of citrus tropical fruits, with butter and toast. It is a rich, concentrated wine with crisp acidity and balanced oak flavours. It is delicious now but will last several more years.
