Domain Wines / Savigny-Les-Beaune

In more than 20 years Jean-Luc and Paul, father and sons, established an estate divided over several flagship appellations from Burgundy. Each year some 20,000 bottles of vin du domaine are produced from the seven hectares of owned vines. This vineyard is pampered all year round with an average yield of only 35 hectolitres per hectare. After harvesting and carefully sorting the grapes, the grape juice is turned into wine with care and attention and then the wine is aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 12 months.

The result of this work of excellence is that today they are creating "Les Vins du Domaine" with a new, fashionable, modern look.

  • Terroir

    An appellation of the Côte de Beaune, Savigny-les-Beaune enjoys a terroir that allows both red and white to express themselves.

  • Varietals

    100% Pinot Noir

  • Vinification

    After being hand-harvested, the grapes are put into stainless steel tanks for pre-fermentation maceration for 2 to 4 days. Then, alcoholic fermentation is begun using nothing but natural starters. Malolactic fermentation and ageing take place in oak barrels for 8 to 12 months.

  • Tasting notes

    Its purple robe with garnet highlights reveals a bouquet of red and black berries (blackcurrant, cherry, raspberry) and flowers (violets). Its body, discreetly tannic and rich, preserves its fruit. Its roundness and volume and balance and power in the right proportions often elegantly evoke griotte cherries.

  • Food pairing

    A loyal partner to fried beef or foie gras, this Savigny-les-Beaune also marries well with roast, glazed or caramelised poultry. It prefers mild cheeses such as Chaource, Brie de Meaux, Tomme, Reblochon, Cantal, Mont d’Or and Epoisses.

  • Aeging and Service Temperature

    Ideally served at 15°C. Open it within 3 to 5 years to appreciate its full power.
