Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
The purity and beauty to this wine is certainly impressive with raspberry, blueberry and lavender aromas. Simple character on the palate with a full body, chewy and round tannins and a savory finish, leaving flint, dried black-tea and spice on the aftertaste.
A classic source of exceptional Chardonnay as well as Pinot Noir, the Côte de Beaune makes up the southern half of the Côte d’Or. Its principal wine-producing villages are Pernand-Vergelesses, Aloxe-Corton, Beaune, Pommard, Volnay, Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet.
The area is named for its own important town of Beaune, which is essentially the center of the Burgundy wine business and where many negociants center their work. Hospices de Beaune, the annual wine auction, is based here as well.
