About Savigny les Beaune:
Savigny les Beaune is one of the largest communes on the Côte de Beaune. Here the vines cover a total of 383 hectares.  The vineyards run from up behind the village down to the D974 road close to the Corton hill.

East of Savigny les Beaune is where you'll find the majority of the vines. Here the valley of the river Rhoin opens up into flatter land. In the middle of the plain is 150 hectares of village land. The 22 premier crus are divided into two groups – one along the Paris-Lyon motorway and one on the Pernand-Vergelesses side.

Savigny les Beaune produces more red wine than any other commune on the Côte de Beaune. There is white Savigny les Beaune, both on village and premier cru level, but the output is only just above ten percent of the annual production.
