Savigny-les-Beaune is a wine appellation in the Burgundy region of France lying just to the north west of the city of Beaune. Elegant red wines made from Pinot Noir and delicious white wines made from Chardonnay are found here. The appellation was established on 31st July 1937.
The appellation only covers the commune of Savigny-les-Beaune and lies in a wedge between the N74 and the A6 - although some small areas are found on the south side of the A6.
The main grape varieties are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, however the white wines can also contain Pinot Blanc with no limit set on the percentage used. Red wines must contain Pinot Noir but can contain some Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc or Pinot Gris.
