Côte De Beaune

The Côte De Beaune winegrowing region covers 20km from north to south and lies between Ladoix-Serrigny and the hillsides of the Maranges. Facing the morning sun, these vineyards are never more than a few hundred metres wide, yet they produce red and white wines that are internationally renowned. Their reputation also extends to the town of Beaune, an historical centre where you can discover all of the secrets of the Burgundy 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.

Local winemakers produce famous appellations from these two varieties typically used in the Bourgogne winegrowing region.
