Neighboring the vineyards of Beaune, the Savigny-les-Beaune "Les Marconnets" plot is located at the top of the hill. Exposed south-east, it owes its name to an important ancient spring which emerged in Beaune and continued its path on the side of Savigny-les-Beaune. This source was at one time the Commune Fountain of Beaune, "Marconnet" being derived from the old French "marais".
