Although the donation came from his mother, this Cuvée evokes the memory of Xavier Forneret, a famous 19th century writer and poet who came from a distinguished family whose Beaune origins date back to the 16th century. The Cuvée comes from slopes to the north of Savigny: Les Vergelesses facing south and south-east.
