"Since 1921, at the entrance of the sleepy village of Savigny les Beaune resides this lovely family-owned estate. Following vigneron generations before him, Jean-Michel Maurice studied in Beaune and at the University of Beaune before purchasing pre-Phylloxera vineyards in Hautes Cotes de Beaune, now holding 12.5 hectares. With his wife Yvonne and son Stephen (who studied Pinot Noir winemaking in Australia), they are committed to producing wines true to the intrinsic feminine character of Savigny Les Beaune. The appellation is in a shaded valley that means cooler temperatures, longer hang time, lower brix levels and wines with lower alcohol, more delicacy and elegance in style, yet with acidity for graceful aging. The Prieure (Abbey) on their label built in 1771 was their winery until building the new one in 1992.
All of Burgundy's red wines are produced from Pinot Noir grapes. Coming from a plot located in Savigny les Beaune, Bourgogne Pinot Noir is a wine that expresses all the aromas of its varietal in a simple way. This wine is soft and fruity, perfect for most occasions."
