Savigny-lès-Beaune, Aux Guettes is 14.08-hectare Premier Cru climat in the wine commune Savigny-lès-Beaune, situated in Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune. Situated in the Pernand sector of Savigny, north of the Rhoin River on a steep portion of the hillside descending from Bois Noël, Aux Guettes lies just above the village of Savigny, at the northwestern end of the band of Premiers Crus. Facing south from an elevation varying between 270 and 330 meters, the sandy reddish soil is rich in clay with many protruding rocks.
The vineyard name, “Guettes”, refers to a masonry hunting blind (a “guet” in French) that lies on the uphill section of the vineyard, from which hunters can observe game unseen.
Very fine Aux Guettes is made by Domaine Jean-Marc et Hugues Pavelot.
