Our Wines

  • Around 10 kilometers south of Beaune there is a place on the Côte where three great Burgundy white wines meet.
  • If any town can claim to be born under the auspices of a guiding star, Beaune can. The star, seen on numerous paintings or embroideries at the Hôtel-Dieu, is the love between its two founders, Nicolas Rolin and his wife Guigone de Salins. Encircled by its ramparts and bastions like a cask by its staves, Beaune is a flamboyant gothic representation of a love story between Burgundy and Flanders, in the days of the Order of the Golden Fleece.
  • Our Beaune assembles several small parcels from the Montée Rouge climat, grown on both sides of a ruddy, iron-rich coomb. Known by wine growers as “The White Virgin”, the south-facing vine has both structure and power.
  • The red clay, rare in the Côte de Nuits, gives this wine a delicate, tender heart. Its composition includes several climats from Vougeot to Morey-Saint-Denis: Les Véroilles, Les Argillères, the renowned Les Baudes climat, Les Condemennes and Les Chardannes. Its powerful, racy temperament belies Chambolle-Musigny’s reputation as a “women’s wine”.
