Beaune January 1st, 2017


The capital of the region, undervalued for its own vineyards and wines. The large producers often make a 1er Cru blend. Elegance and suppleness are the hallmarks, though with more muscle and tannin in and around Grèves. Some good whites (especially Clos des Mouches) but others lack character.

  • Vineyards: Grèves, Vignes Franches, Clos des Mouches
  • Producers: Domaine des Croix, Louis Jadot, Bouchard Père & Fils, Joseph Drouhin, Domaine Chanson
