The vineyards to the east of Beaune produce wines that resemble neighboring Corton. They tend to the leaner side of the spectrum. Sometimes they even seem downright crunchy. Vineyards toward the north generally produce sturdier wines while vineyards toward the south tend to be more delicate. Don’t be surprised to find wines of both colors bearing the same appellations, ex. Clos des Mouches Premier Cru.
