Savigny is a typical old Burgundy wine-making village a few hundred yards away from the north of Beaune. Today, the Savigny-les-Beaune appellation is shared between the cultivation of Chardonnay and the majority varietal Pinot Noir. It groups together 22 vineyards classified under Premier Cru, one of which is the famous ? Les Peuillets ?. Planted on a clay-and-limestone soil on hard Callovian limestone bedrock called ?pearled flagstones?, the ? Les Peuillets? Premier Cru vineyard is just on the limits of the Beaune appellation at an average altitude of 250 metres (820 ft). The land here is on gentle slopes orientated south-southeast, providing ideal exposure to the sun, which ensures full ripening of the grapes.

Food pairing
An ideal wine with grilled meat (beef filet with red wine sauce, duck with cranberries) or a beautiful cheese platter with Abbey-produced cheese such as Citeaux de Bourgogne. Serving and keeping Serve between 16?C - 18?C (60?F - 64?F) Laying : Drink while young for the fruitiness or lay for a dozen-or-so years to allow the more gamey and spicy notes to develop.

Producer
SINCE 1831 The first traces of the Bichot family date back to 1214. They settled in Burgundy in 1350, in their fief of Chateauneuf-en-Auxois. The family?s coat of arms has not changed since nor has its symbol, a doe (biche). In 1831, Bernard Bichot founded a wine trading business in his name in Monthelie. His son, Hippolyte, succeeded him and bought the first vines in Volnay, already convinced that upstream control was essential. His son, Albert Bichot, the first to bear the name, gave the family business new momentum in the late 19th century and settled in the centre of Beaune once and for all in 1912. The second Albert Bichot, who was born in 1900, was a pioneer of international commerce. North America, Asia, Oceania? He travelled incessantly in order to introduce our wines, which were already recognized as being among the best, to wine lovers around the world. In the second half of the 20th century, his four sons, Albert, Bernard, Benigne and Jean-Marc, inherited this know-how. A new era of expansion began with the construction of a large ageing cellar, a new bottling centre and winery. Our wines were available in all of the world?s continents. ALB?RIC BICHOT, THE NEW GENERATION After having gone off to discover the world, (from the Arctic to Adelie Land), Alberic Bichot joined the company in the early 90s and took over its management in 1996. Though he fully respects family traditions, he is completely focused on the future. He compares himself to the ?conductor of an orchestra, proud to bring people and their talents together over a common project?. The challenges are numerous: converting to organic viticulture in the Cote-d?Or vineyards, on-going adaptation to new markets, increasing the prestige and exposure of Burgundy wines and much more. Convinced that the quality of wine depends on the quality of the grapes, he has focused on developing the upstream control that was undertaken in the 1980s. He secured supplies, and began to expand our vinification capacity and the ageing cellars in 2010. The company?s vineyards now total 6 estates that cover Burgundy from north to south.
