One of Savigny’s oldest domaines, originally founded in 1529. Jean-Jacques has been producing wine here as the sole proprietor since 1998, and with significant recent investment in the cellar and winery he is producing outstanding wines. With his long experience of viticulture, Jean-Jacques firmly believes that the best wines are made in the vineyard and thus focuses his efforts on optimising the quality and health of the grapes themselves. This effort is reflected in his delightfully supple, elegant and classic wines, with his Savigny and Corton releases of particular note in 2020.
A stunning glass of wine – one to make you sit up and notice. The Clos du Roi vineyard is set on the north-western outskirts of Beaune and is part of a premier cru belt of land that produces outstanding wines. Dark cherries and a floral leafiness predominate on the nose, with developing nuances and a concertation on the palate that augur well for complexities to come. An absolute star performer once again.
