Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune is a wine-producing region located in the Burgundy region of France, known for its red and white wines made primarily from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. The Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC) is a designation that indicates that a wine has been produced in the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune region and meets certain quality standards set by the AOC regulations.
Wines produced in this region are considered to be of high quality, but they are not as well-known or as expensive as the more prestigious Côte de Beaune wines. The Hautes-Côtes de Beaune area is located on the hillsides above the Côte de Beaune, and it is known for its unique terroir and microclimate, which gives the wines a unique character.
The red wines of this region are typically made from Pinot Noir grapes and are known for their rich, fruity flavours and elegant tannins. The white wines, made from Chardonnay grapes, are known for their crisp acidity, minerality and floral aromas. These wines are usually aged for several years before being released, which gives them a characteristic complexity and depth of flavour.
Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune wines pair well with a variety of foods, such as grilled meats, hearty stews, and mature cheeses. They are considered to be a good value for their quality, and a good alternative to more expensive Côte de Beaune wines.
