Wine information

The wine comes from the single vineyard Les Saucours. The parcel is located in the south of Savigny-lès-Beaune, on the road to Beaune, at medium altitude, facing east. With its eight-year-old Chardonnay vines, it covers 0.6 hectares and was planted with a vine density of 10,000 vines/hectare. The yield is around 35 hl/ha. The soil is characterized by clay and loam on limestone (Marnes blanches). The wine was fermented in barrels and tonneaux, aged in used barriques and tonneaux with 15 to 18 months on the fine lees. 


medium straw yellow


The white Savigny-lès-Beaune from Les Saucours is a wine from young vines with a lively bouquet in the ripe green-yellow spectrum. Here we find green as well as yellow pears, mirabelles, grapefruits and lemons with peel abrasion. There are also notes of buttered toast thinly spread with honey and hints of wood and lime, honeysuckle and white lilac.


On the palate the Les Saucours Powerful and juicy, at the same time punchy and fresh with a ripe and lively acidity typical for 2018, which is extremely animating to drink. The Burgundy offers grapefruit and orange zest, herbs, a little beeswax and pear. It reminds with it in its aromatics and its acid structure a little of Saumur-Chenin, has a salty and spicy vein that becomes more and more obvious on the finish. This wine from young vines already has an impressive amount of mineral liveliness.
