Savigny-lès-Beaune Blanc

Chardonnay
Description

The vineyards of Savigny-lès-Beaune have belonged to the Dukes of Burgundy, the clergy, the Knights of Malta and the feudal lords. On the slopes rising above the village, our two plots enjoy a perfect southerly aspect, with soils rich in marl and limestone.

Please note that this is an imported wine and cannot legally be shipped to GA, IL, MI, MT, VA, IA, or MO.

Grapefruit, white flowers and crushed rock aromas.

There is good volume and plenty of mid-palate fat to the delicious and energetic medium-bodied flavors.
