Etymology

At Savigny-lès-Beaune, this lieu-dit is not very far from the river Rhoin below Les Saucours. This rarely used name in toponymy is a derivative of Rouvre – from Latin ROBUR – which designates a place where sessile oak trees (chênes rouvres) grew. These trees mostly thrive in national forests in the west and the centre of France where they are associated with beech trees and hornbeams.

The vineyard plot(s)

Massal selection of Pinot Noir grafted onto 161-49 rootstocks. Quite old vines (58 years old) which are somewhat afflicted by the court-noué fanleaf virus. Whilst this causes coulure (poor set) and millerandage (poor fertilisation) the vines produce small yields of loose bunches of concentrated grapes.

The soil and subsoil

The soil here is very different from the northside of the Combe valley of Savigny-lès-Beaune. It is a very complex, multilayered ground made up of layers of various screes resulting from the erosion of the overlying slopes on top of a layer of approximately 1 metre-thick silt which in turn is on top of a layer of gravel. The ground is quite well-drained and heats up quickly. There are however sufficient reserves of water in the ground to prevent excess water stress in the vines but not so much as to cause root asphyxia in wet conditions.

The vinification

According to the vintage conditions.

The exposition

In spite of its exposition this north-east facing plot on a gentle slope gets a lot of sunshine. An altitude of around 250 m.
