Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er cru Les Lavières
The vines, planted in the 1950's are mid-slope and predominantly stoney limestone soil. Lavières comes from the word “lave” which in this case has no volcanic reference, but was the term used in the past to describe the flat limestone tiles used to cover the roofs. In fact, these famous stones are found here in the sub-soil. The vines are more than fifty years-old and are situated in the finest part of the appellation. 100% whole cluster and 15% new oak. More structured and serious than the Fournaux, also very pretty.
