WINEMAKER NOTES: The Savigny les Beaune Premier Cru 'La Dominode' is a wine with quite an intense colour. Solidly-built, lacking neither character nor strength, it is a very fruity and silky wine in the mouth with a potential for ageing. It will go very well with light, red or white meat, game and with quite strong cheeses as it matures.

It is situated at a height of between 220 and 360m. The chalky soils are gravely or stony, light and not very fertile. Situated on Mont-Battois, on the edge of the Beaune vineyard, facing north-east, the 'La Dominode' premier cru ('Vine of the Lord') lies on a sandy, slightly pebbly soil, within the Hautes Jarrons 1er Cru vineyard.
