A lieu-dit planted in 1929, this is top notch, old vines Pinot with pure, terroir transparency at a very reasonable price.

The village of Savigny-les-Beaune is nestled in a combe, or shallow canyon, between the hills above Beaune and those that include the famous vineyards of Corton. The Le Rhoin stream runs through the town and has some of the most pure, blue, limestone cleaned water I've ever seen. Most of the vineyards sit along the hills to the north of the river and face south, instead of the predominantly east facing vineyards that line most of the Cote d'Or.

Due to this exposition and being somewhat hidden from the main road, the wines of Savigny have historically been undervalued. But climate change has been beneficial to these vines, and there have always been excellent producers here. One of the top domaines is Camus-Bruchon, where the very talented young winemaker Guillaume Camus recently took over for his father Lucien, who had been at the helm for 4 decades.

Both Guillaume and Luc are fastidious farmers, everything is done by hand according to sustainable and organic practices. They are blessed with some of the best parcels in Savigny and also some of the oldest vines, many planted by Guillaume’s great-grandmother Reine Joly just before and after WWI. That’s right, some of their vines are now over 100 years old.

In most villages along the Cote d'Or, the top producers with the best vineyards and oldest vines are able to charge triple digits (or even quadruple) for their wines. Not so in Savigny, which is why it is always one of favorite “edges of Burgundy” locales: real deal terroir at prices that you usually don't find until you get down to the Chalonnaise.

Antonio Galloni

AG 91
"Matured with 10% new oak, the 2020 Savigny-lès-Beaune Les Pimentiers, from vines planted in 1929, has a well-defined and quite expressive bouquet with subtle rose petal and sous-bois scents percolating though the red fruit. The palate is well balanced, the 25% new oak neatly enmeshed with quite a sappy finish. Not long in the mouth, nevertheless, this constitutes a very decent Savigny-lès-Beaune." -Vinous
