Discover the Beaune appellation
Beaune is a majestic city, known all over the world for its Hospices and their wine sales, is also the perfect incarnation of the Burgundy region. The Beaune appellation is mostly red wines made with Pinot Noir, from grapevines growing in a soil rich in limestone and marls. Sun exposure varies from east to south-east, and sometimes full south. Here, the Premiers Crus are softer in the Grèves plot, and thicker in the famous Clos des Mouches.
The Beaune AOC is a Village appellation, created in 1936. Found deep within the Côte de Beaune, between Savigny-lès-Beaune (to the north) and Pommard (to the south), this appellation is composed of 42 Premiers Crus wines, which is to say 70% of the entire vineyard. The yearly output for the AOC is 16,000 hectoliters, for an area of 420 hectares in total.
