Côte de Beaune is a wine-growing region located in the Burgundy region of France. It is known for producing high-quality white and red wines. The white wines are made from Chardonnay grapes, while the red wines are made from Pinot Noir grapes. The wines from the Côte de Beaune are considered to be some of the finest expressions of these grape varieties. They are known for their complexity, elegance and balance, with the white wines showing notes of citrus, apple, and mineral, and the red wines showing notes of cherry, raspberry, and spice. The Côte de Beaune AOC (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée) was established in 1936, and covers the wine-growing areas of Aloxe-Corton, Beaune, Meursault, Pommard, Puligny-Montrachet, and Volnay.
