The donors commemorated here are Denis-Antoine Fouquerand and his wife Claudine, who made their gifts in 1832 and 1844. The wine in this Cuvée comes from fne Pinots in Les Talmettes, dating from 1965 and 1966, along with Gravains (partly planted in 1958) and Serpentières (1997). This Cuvée consists of vineyards from some of Savigny’s most highly reputed, southerly-facing hillsides.
