  • Domaine Vincent SAUVESTRE - Meursault et Savigny-Les-Beaune (21) Ouvrir

    LOCATION
    This property is located in Meursault, in the heart of the Côte de Beaune, producing supple red wines and exceptional white wines. The vineyard, spread over several plots, extends all along the Côte, from Nuits-Saint-Georges to Santenay and produces two exceptionally fine Grands Crus: the Corton-Charlemagne et the Corton-Maréchaudes.

    CLIMATE
    The climate is mainly continental, with hot summers and dry autumns, which are ideal for grape ripening. These climatic conditions enable the development of high levels of sugar and deep colours.

    GRAPE VARIETY & CULTIVATION
    The property has been managed by Jacques Briday since 2007, who applies principles of sustainable agriculture that respect the environment. The land of the Côte de Beaune is made up of clay limestone and clay from the Middle and Late Jurassic periods. The soil is often brown, with hard limestone gravel.
    The vineyards of the Côte de Beaune are often on younger lands than the Côte de Nuits. The limestone clay base is quite similar, but with less drainage of the soil.
    Grape variety is exclusively pinot noir for the reds and chardonnay for the whites.
