Domaine Georges Roy & Fils, Savigny-Lès-Beaune Les Picotins
For four generations, Domaine Georges Roy was a longstanding purveyor of famous négociant wines. However, things
began to change during the late 1990s, when brother and sister duo Vincent and Claire Roy took the reins. Located in
the heart of Chorey-lès-Beaune, Vincent and Claire farm nine hectares of vines across a handful of unique growing
sites. The majority of their vineyard holdings are dedicated to Pinot Noir, though a small percentage is planted to
Chardonnay and Aligoté (10% each, respectively). The average age of their vines is 45 years. In the cellar, the curious
and open-minded Vincent tries to start working naturally with spontaneous fermentation from native yeasts and works
like bottling in conjunction with the lunar calendar.
