Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru Cuvée Arthur Girard
Côte de Beaune|
Level: Premier Cru
|AOC: Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru|
|Grapes: Pinot Noir|
Deep crimson colour. Attractive bouquet, the fruit on the cusp of red and black, with some fresh cherry notes intertwined with some darker fruit. It encapsulates the elegance to which Savigny should aspire, and the finish is beautifully poised.
Pork tenderloin, mixed salad with duck confit, potato gratin.
Arthur Girard bequeathed part of his worldly goods to the Hôtel-Dieu in 1936. This included his properties in Savigny : Les Guettottes, Les Peuillots, Marconnets and Bas Marconnets, Les Lavières, Les Charnières or Chaurières, or possibly Les Champs Charbon Fourches. This Cuvée traditionally comes entirely
from two Premiers Crus: Bas Marconnets and Les Peuillets, which both run up to the commune boundary with Beaune.
