Cote de Beaune

"In the rolling landscape around Beaune, the winemakers produce some world-renowned appellations. Come and discover these characterful red and white wines like Volnay, Meursault Premier Cru or Montrachet, one of the most famous Grands Crus in the world...

Between Ladoix-Serrigny and the hillsides of the Maranges, the Côte de Beaune winegrowing region covers 20km from north to south. Facing the morning sun, these vineyards are never more than a few hundred meters wide. Yet they produce red and white wines that are internationally renowned. Their reputation also extends to the town of Beaune, an historical center where you can discover all the secrets of the Bourgogne winegrowing region.

A little farther to the west, behind the Côte de Beaune, the vines flourish on a gently concave plateau, 400m above sea level. This is the Hautes Côtes de Beaune. On the sunniest slopes, around 20 communes produce lively and accessible wines from the Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Beaune appellation.

Around the town of Beaune, the vineyards are mainly planted with Pinot Noir (Volnay, Pommard, Ladoix, etc.), although the Chardonnay grape produces a few marvels on the Corton hill (Corton, Corton-Charlemagne). From Meursault onwards, the Chardonnay grape dominates, producing wines that are very diverse in terms of their aromatic profile, between legendary appellations such as Bâtard-Montrachet and less well-known treasures such as Saint-Aubin and Santenay." - Bourgogne Wines
