The Côte de Beaune area is the southern part of the Côte d'Or, the limestone ridge that is home to the great names of Burgundy wine. The Côte de Beaune starts between Nuits-Saint-Georges and Beaune, and extends southwards. Since the establishment in 1936 of the two Appellations d'Origine Contrôlée Beaunoises, the highest part of Beaune is classified in Côte de Beaune: the Sermon on the Mountain. Specific name of the town, it should not be confused with the name Cote de Baune -Village appellation produced in municipalities of the Côte de Beaune as it is always ppreceded by the name of one of these communes. Quite small in size, the Cote de Beaune appellation produces one-third of white wines made from Chardonnay and two-thirds of red wines made from Pinot Noir.
On the other hand is the Côte de Nuits, located north of the Côte d'Or and occupies a narrow strip of hills that stretches for several kilometers long, between Dijon in the north and Corgoloin in the south. This region produces mainly reds from Pinot Noir, which produces unique wines. The Côte de Nuits is an exceptional vineyard in Burgundy!
