François Martenot Bourgogne Pinot Noir


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.
