Savigny-Les Beaune Les Planchots

Pinot Noir

Elegant mid-weight reds are made in the traditional dry, earthy style of the French classics. Most are Pinot Noirs, but all share European sensibilities and a savory food-oriented flavor profile.

FOOD PAIRING: Flexible partners for lighter meats, poultry & seafood (served hot). Ideal for dishes accented with CHEESE, MUSHROOMS or GARLIC, but not suited for spicy heat or sugary foods!

This appellation boasts 180 ha of “Village” appellation. Savigny's vineyards form a V-shape and are located at the meeting place of a valley and the plain, offering some of the most picturesque scenery in the Côte d'Or. The climate "Les Planchots" is located at the entrance to the Savigny-Lès-Beaune valley, close to the national road. The Rhoin river runs through the middle of the plot. Planchot is the Burgundian derivative of Planche (from late Latin Planca). Since the Middle Ages, one has called Planche a footbridge, a litlle bridge made with planks enabling people and animals to cross a river on foot.
