In Stock & Ready To Ship!

Made from grapes grown in an 80 acre plot on the slopes of Savigny les Beaune which enjoys excellent sunshine. This elegant perfurmed Savigny preserves the complex raspberry fruit flavours, distinct mineral character and power inherited from the iron rich soil. The inclusion of some stems created an inticing, smokey nose which draws you in to enjoy this wine which is well-balanced and smooth on the palate.

Found in the heart of the Cote de Beaune, the picturesque village of Savigny-les-Beaune has for a long time earned its good name. It was here that the monks of Citeaux, the founders of the Burgundian vineyard system, became substantial property owners. In order to administer their vineyards they established a priory in the 16th century, hence the name. Today the domaine is owned by Jean-Michel Maurice, the mayor of Savigny, along with his son Stephen.

The soft, ripe tannins in this wine make it the perfect partner to rich dishes such as Grouse or a wild mushroom risotto. Also can be enjoyed as an accompaniment to cheeses such as mature Brie, Cantal or Epoisses.

Burgundy, France

Burgundy (or Bourgogne in French) is small in size, the Côte d'Or has about 8000 hectares under vine, yet its influence is immense. It is home to some of the best known and most expensive wines in the world. Look in the right places and there is great quality and superb value to be found.

The two major grapes are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, though you can find small pockets of well-made Aligoté.

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is the holy grail grape for many winemakers, it is a difficult mistress, but when made well it shines.

Young Pinot Noir has delicious aromas of cherries, raspberries, and strawberries. With age it develops complexity and mystery. Older wines have the capacity to become a gamey style of wine, and the best examples show autumnal notes of truffles, mushrooms, and forest floor.

Stephen Maurice, Domaine du Prieuré

Stephen is the fourth generation of the Maurice family to make wine. Auguste, his great-grandfather, was working for other winemakers at the turn of the twentieth century when he planted a few vines in Savigny. Henry, born in 1921, bought a few plots and expanded the vineyards to 4 ha. Jean-Michel, born in 1955, bought more land in Hautes Côtes de Beaune. Stephen continues the family legacy.
