Wine Characteristics

Small differences appear, depending on the exact location. Wines from the Northern end of the commune are more often intense and powerful, and those from the southern end are smoother and fuller.
Red: this wine has a striking and vivid colour - a luminous scarlet, introducing aromas of black fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry) and red (cherry, gooseberry), as well as humus and underbrush. When older, it is redolent of truffle, leather, and spices. In youth, it charms the palate with the taste of crunchy fresh grape. Firm, upright and full of juice, it evolves with time, revealing a solid and absolutely convincing structure.
White: this wine boasts a silky gold colour, flecked with green. It has a bouquet of almond, dried fruits, bracken, and white flowers. It may be enjoyed either young “on the fruit” or later for its mouth-filling mellowness.
 

Wine Steward’s Tip


Red: fleshy and generous, the Beaune reveal great aromatic power and solid texture which inevitably partners them with musky and very firm meats such as feathered game, roasted or braised. Cheeses: choose Époisses,
Soumaintrain, Munster, Maroilles...
Serving temperature: 15 to 16°C.
White: their flowery freshness makes them a marvelous match for poultry and veal in creamy sauces, fish tajines, sushi, and grilled sea-fish. When older (and fleshier) they enfold and tame cheeses such as Cîteaux, Comté, and certain goat cheeses.
Serving temperature: 12 to 14°C.
 

Situation

A burgundian icon and capital of Bourgogne’s wine trade, Beaune takes centre place on the world stage during the annual Hospices de Beaune wine auction.
The Hôtel-Dieu, built in the Flamboyant style, the huge silent cellars of the négociants houses, and the wine-growing domaines of the district all attract countless visitors. The Beaune vineyards are among the most extensive of the Côte. From here comes the Pinot vermilion of the Dukes of Bourgogne- a red wine, aromatic and full of fire, whose reputation goes back to the late Middle Ages. The whites, less common, make the best use of soils suited to the Chardonnay grape.
The BEAUNE AOC was established in 1936.
 

Terroirs


In the synclinal of Volnay the Comblanchien limestone disappears into the depths to be replaced by the overlying Rauracian. The slopes are quite steep and the soil (scree-derived black rendzinas) thinnish. On the lower slopes are Argovian marls and deep soils, white, grey or yellow, tinged with red from the iron in the Oxfordian limestone. At the foot of the slope, limestones are mixed with clay. Exposure: east to due south. Altitudes: 220 to 300 metres.
