Winemaker Notes

From the lieu dit of Pimentiers in the center of the Savigny-Lés-Beaune appellation. There are gavelly soils here, interspersed with ferruginous oolite. The wine is vinified at low temperature followed by malolactic fermentation in used barrels. No fining or filtration.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Set on the plain away from the village of Savigny, the vineyard has produced its usual soft and generous wine. In this vintage, acidity is an important element that is now integrating with the red-berry fruits and gentle tannins. Ripe and juicy, the wine will age relatively quickly. Drink from 2022.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
A juicy style, featuring vibrant acidity driving the light strawberry, cherry and currant flavors. Shows fine intensity midpalate, with a minerally accent on the finish. Drink now through 2025.

Arnoux Pere & Fils, France
Pascal Arnoux is the fourth generation to farm his family vineyards in Burgundy. After completing his formal studies at the Lycée Viticole in Beaune and working for several years with his uncles, Pascal formally took charge of the domaine in 2007. While the cellars are based in in the village of Chorey-lès-Beaune, the domaine vineyards encompass 50 acres covering the appellations of Chorey-lès-Beaune, Savigny-lès-Beaune, Beaune and Corton. All of the vineyards are farmed sustainably, with an eye towards preserving the land for future generations. In the cellar all of the fruit is de-stemmed, and oak treatment, while utilized, is always employed judiciously. The results are a range of classically styled wines that admirably reflect the unique characteristics of their provenance.

Savigny-lès-Beaune is a small village near Beaune that produces delightful red and white wines under its own appellation name. Cut by a river, the vineyards on its southern side have sandy soils that result in charming, floral reds. Premiers Crus vineyards on this side include Les Peuillets, Les Narbantons, Les Rouvrettes and Les Marconnets.

On Savigny’s northern side, bordering Pernand-Vergelles, vineyards are planted on rocky soils and produce juicy and spicy Pinot Noir. The village’s best whites, all made of Chardonnay, are full on the palate and abound in texture, complexity and freshness.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
