Les Dessus-Vermots and Les Gollardes are two lovely white Village appellations in Savigny-Lès-Beaune, which sit side by side at around 984 feet above sea level when one leaves the center of Savigny and climbs up towards Bouilland.
Les Vermots is located alongside the Rhoin, a stream which runs off the Côte. Its name is probably a reference to the former presence of trees in the area alders, or vernes in old French. In 1826, this climat was recorded as Les Vermots.
Les Gollardes is situated in a dry, stony area near the forest lodge known as Grand Hâ, above the area known as Les Goudelettes. The name comes from the old French golle, goule, gollot: a narrow passage in the shape of a neck, throat, or gullet.
Aged for 15 months in oak barrels and 3 months in stainless steel tank.
Grapefruit, white flowers and crushed rocks aromas.
There is good volume and plenty of mid-palate fat to the delicious and energetic medium-bodied flavors.
