“Lick your lips three times and pay this wine a complement”, as they used to say about Savigny wine. The advice is still valid today, given the lively nature of this “nourishing, theological, morale-boosting” wine.
The Les Marconnets climat straddles the border between Beaune and Savigny. It is mentioned several times in the Martyrology of Beaune in the 13th century: supervineam de Marconain (1270), super vineam que est in fossa de Marconnay (1294).
The name is derived from a spring and a stream.Jules Guyot (1807-1872), author of several books on vines and wine, spent time here with the Comte de La Loyère, who worked to modernise wine-growing methods in the 19th century. Jules Guyot gave his name to the training method he developed.
