Beaune is one of the largest areas in the Burgundy wine region of France and it is known for its exceptional wines and unique climats. Some of the domains in this region date back a few centuries; other wineries in Beaune have modern and developed cellars.
Beaune wineries are known to primarily produce red wine from Burgundy’s most famous grape variety: Pinot Noir. However, changing trends in consumption have prompted many wine growers to start cultivating and producing white wine from the Chardonnay grape variety. The Beaune wineries produce wines that start getting lighter and more perfumed as one starts moving further south from this region. The region of Beaune is known to have an unusual number of Premier-Cru classified wine estates. Some of the most iconic of these Premier-Cru growths are Clos des Mouches, whose white wine is very highly regarded, Clos des Ursules, producing famous red wines and the Vigne De L'Enfant Jésus which has been producing red wine since the 17th century.
