1er Cru Les Lavières
Balance and maturity are the two words that come to mind when Savigny’s vineyards are mentioned.
They are located three kilometres north of Beaune.
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. These vineyards are of ancient lineage. For much of their history, they belonged to the domaine of the Dukes of Bourgogne, to neighbouring religious houses, or to the Knights of Malta. An imposing 14th century castle testifies to the appellation's aristocratic qualifications.
The discovery of Merovingian graves in this parcel gave it its name: "The Lavières". Indeed, these graves were covered with a typical Burgundian flat stone, the same used for the clos, called lava. The parcel is located in mid-slope.
