The Côte d’Or

The Côte d’Or is a narrow, east-facing slope of differing limestone-based soils. At the top and bottom of the slope, the soil quality and aspect are considered second to the elevations in mid-slope, where Premier and Grand Cru vineyards tend to reside at 250 to 300 meters on well-draining limestone soil with an ideal exposure to sunlight.
The Côte d’Or is divided into two main regions, the Côte de Nuits in the north, known for producing world-class red wines from Pinot Noir, and the Côte de Beaune, in the south, best known for white wines from Chardonnay, but producing its share of reds as well.
