Cote 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.
