Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Marconnets
Over the ages the Savigny-lès-Beaune vineyards have belonged to the Dukes of Burgundy, the clergy, the Knights of Malta, and local gentry. Les Marconnets is in a splendid location on the Beaune side of the steep hillside. The soil, though calcareous further down the hill, is sandy and pebbly here, rich in iron, ideal for our oldish vines.

Geographic situation: Like a map unfolding, the Côte de Beaune widens at Savigny. The slopes rise gently at first, then more steeply, with vines laid out on either side of a small stream, the Rhoin. On one side is Pernand-Vergelesses, on the other Beaune, under the Mont Battois. Les Marconnets is in an excellent site on the Beaune side.
