  • Mentioned in 1117 by the name of "de Seviniaco", Savigny could be derived from the Latin "Silva" "forest, wood", "In-Iacus" is, as for it, used in many place names formed by a common name, whose meaning is related to geography or vegetation of the place. This interpretation is made because Savigny is a great wine village with 2093 ha of forest. The major parts of the Savigny-les-Beaune Premier Cru come from the northern bank in the direction of Pernand-Vergelesses. The heavy soils and good southerly exposure guarantee a wine of great finesse.
