Côte de Beaune
Discover the Côte de Beaune appellation
The Côte de Beaune is a vineyard in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, in the east of France. It is right on the border of another vineyard: the Côte de Nuits. Together, they form the Côte d'Or, probably the most famous part of the entire Burgundy vineyard. There, you'll find many famous appellations, such as Corton, Montrachet, Volnay, Meursault, Santenay, or Pommard, to cite only a few.
All of these famous appellations come from two grape varieties: Pinot Noir for the red wines and Chardonnay for the white ones. The Côte de Beaune vineyard is 30 km in length, for 2 km in width. Its soil is mainly composed of clay and limestone, with hints of silt (fine sediment from river beds, remnants from the ice age).
