Savigny-lès-Beaune is a wine-growing village located along the northern border of Beaune. It is one of the most important villages of the Côte d'Or, with nearly 350 ha of production, 306 ha of which are Pinot Noir. The appellation is composed of 22 areas classified as Premiers Crus over 140 ha. The vineyard enjoys different exposures: southerly, south-easterly, easterly, and north-easterly, at altitudes between 220 and 360 m above sea level. The limestone soil is light, filled with stones and not very fertile.
The grapes for this wine come from Domaine Champy's “Bas Liards”, “Planchots”, “Les Fourneaux” and “Les Pimentiers” plots. They are hand harvested and aged in barrels (of which 20% are new). This wine is beautiful, intense and shiny ruby in colour. The nose offers aromas of fresh fruit (cherry). The palate is delicate, silky, and aromatic, in continuity with the nose. An elegant minerality at the finish, which lends a chalky character to the wine.
