The Beaune vineyards are the most extensive of the Côte de Beaune, between Savigny to the North, and Pommard to the South. There are no Grand Cru vineyards in this commune, but 36 Premiers Crus, most of them are planted with Pinot Noir.
The vineyards are located on a soft slope. The most famous Premiers Crus are Bressandes and Le Clos blanc.
The Beaune Premier Cru is made of a representative blend including mainly these two Premiers Crus.
It is aged in oak barrels during about 15 to 18 months before being bottled.
Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy
The white Premier Cru from Beaune associates both richness and vivacity.It is well balanced and very attractive.
It will perfectly match fish, shellfish, hot pâté and poultry as well as many cheese.
This wine can be appreciated after 5 years. But great vintages can be kept 12 to 15 years in good conditions of humidity and temperature.
