Situated 5 km north of Beaune, this village was mentioned in 936 for the first time but only took on its present name of Savigny-lès-Beaune in 1863. Vineyards have been planted here for a long time. They belonged to the Dukes of Burgundy then to the Cistercian monks. The vines are planted at an altitude of 220 to 360 metres on particularly chalky ground which is what gives the wines of Savigny such great refinement. In view of their finesse and lightness they are often qualified as "feminine wines".

Tasting Note: Perfumed notes of berry fruit. Soft and willowy, this is an elegant wine with good ageing potential.

The 2018 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Lavières is performing nicely from bottle, offering up a rich bouquet of blackberries, smoked meats, plums, spices and violets, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and lavish, with a generous core of sun-kissed, almost opulent fruit that's framed by succulent acids and powdery tannins. This is another 2018 that bears a strong resemblance to a hypothetical blend of the 2003 and 2005 vintages.
