Cotes De Beaune

The Côte de Beaune begins just a few miles south of Nuits Saint-Georges, around the village of Ladoix. The Côte de Beaune appellation is given to wines coming from the city of Beaune but also from 16 villages around Beaune such as Auxey-Duresses, Chassagne-Montrachet, Ladoix, Saint-Romain and Savigny les Beaune. Red Côte de Beaune are noticeable for their aroma and their warm bouquet. They have a tendency to a slightly lighter body and a quicker maturation than the Côtes de Nuits. The white wines of Côte de Beaune are straw-yellow, robust, thick and smooth, very dry. Côte de Beaune Villages is a different appellation. Wines from all the Côte de Beaune area can substitute their local appellation with this regional type of appellation.

    The strong personality of these wines is always attenuated by the smoothness of the Chardonnay varietal. Their build exudes both elegance and body. After pressing, the must ferments in a vat for several weeks, then the wine matures, in contact with lees, within oak barrels. The lees get stirred up until the time of bottling In the village of Baubigny, the vines run parallel to the Côte de Beaune hillside, at an elevation of roughly 100 meters higher (between 400 and 450 metres). Climatic conditions here are favourable for growing wines, as the south-eastern exposure compensates for altitude-related influences. The soil contains clays and limestone, with substantial iron and manganese; flat stones of an oolitic limestone composition are distinctly present and the ground slope reaches 20%. The vines are all propped up by posts for greater sunlight exposure and grass is grown between the vine rows. Learn More
