Maison François Martenot has its origins at the beginning of the 20th century when Lucien Gustave Martenot acquired a 10 ha estate in Savigny-lès-Beaune. This domain was created in 1859 by Mr. Léonce Bocquet, then the sole owner of the Château du Clos Vougeot, and fervent defender of Burgundy and its cultural heritage. The domain then developed thanks to the acquisition of neighboring land and many works of planting vines and housing works were undertaken.

The Mâconnais mountains form a set of slopes separated by parallel faults and oriented North / North-East or South / South-West. They extend over 40 km to the west of a Tournus-Mâcon line. Established here since Gallo-Roman times, the vines experienced a strong impetus thanks to the powerful abbeys of Cluny and Tournus.


Siliceous, clayey or sandy soils, often mixed with "chailles", or sandstone pebbles.


Traditional vinification in thermos-regulated stainless steel vats on a 3 weeks period: Cold pre-fermentation maceration around 8 ° C. Pigeages and pumping over to extract colour and structure.
