The name Antonin Rodet has been rhyming with Mercurey in the heart of the Côte Chalonnaise since 1875, when the house was founded by Antoine Rodet, known as Antonin. The Clos Rodet, a 17th Century bourgeois mansion situated in the heart of the village, is embodying the House’s historical heart, cellar and values.
For decades, the visionary Rodet family did not hesitate to invest in one of the oldest terroirs in Burgundy and contributed to the business development of the House, brought the Rodet signature into international markets and enhanced its reputation to become a reference in Mercurey and far beyond the native region.

History

Savigny-lès-Beaune wine is produced in the commune of Savigny, in the famous Burgundian Côte de Beaune.

The Appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) Savigny-lès-Beaune may be used for red and white wine with respectively Pinot Noir and Chardonnay as the main grape variety. The name of the appellation is sometimes written simply as Savigny, without the lès-Beaune part.

The production consists of slightly over 85 per cent red wine, and slightly less than 15 per cent white wine. There are no Grand Cru vineyards within Savigny-lès-Beaune. 

The Premier Cru vineyards, called "les Vergelesses" are located at the borderline between the towns of Pernand and Savigny, with southern exposure.

Vinification and maturing

Hand harvested followed by bunch selection. The juices are cooled then settled. The musts are then matured in casks and vats during fermentation and follow the same vinification process as the great Burgundy wines. Stirring and ageing over lees.
