Description
  • Originally, "bantons" might come from the Gallic BANNO "horns". This word has applied to spiky mountains. "Nar" would be the meaning of the adjective black coming from the latine NIGER. This would allude to dark hights, because of woods. The wooden area of Savigny is tremendous.

Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    Our Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru "Les Narbantons" 2014 reveals a beautiful ruby red colour. On the nose, there are notes of black cherries, roasting and undergrowth. The mouth is ample and unveils delicate aromas of red berries and moccha. Tannins are present and needs a bit of ageing. The finish is refreshing and mineral.
