Cote d’Or

Home to the most famous wines in Burgundy, the Cote d’Or is a narrow strip of land situated on a fault line, which giving it enormous geological diversity. All of Burgundy’s Grands Crus (except for those in Chablis) are located here. The Cote de Nuits is the most northerly part of the Cote d’Or. It contains mostly red Grands Crus. The Cote de Beaune is to the south. Most of its Grands Crus are white.

The Cote d’Or is an east-facing escarpment, providing ideal exposure for the vines. Typically, the best wines are found in the middle of the slope. The fertile plain at the hillside’s base produces wines that carry a basic Bourgogne appellation. As the ground starts to slope, improving drainage, one finds village-level wines. Higher on the slope, on poorer, stonier topsoil, are the Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards.

  • Have you been to Burgundy before? Lyon deserves a day or more (far more) for its fantastic food markets and restaurants. After that I'd focus on one area rather than try to cover the whole region. Duncan's suggestions are good.Do you want to see the established, famous and pricier areas (the Cote d'Or, or communes in the Cote de Beaune and Cote ... Read More

  • Joseph Drouhin Chorley-les-Beaune Red Burgundy 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky and brooding with a gruff exterior and streaks of perfumed tar belying a fresh fruit core of cherry and strawberry. This starts out juicy on the palate but quickly goes rustic, earthy and toasted with lit matchstick earthiness and muted fruit notes of cranberry and cherry. Austere, elegant and complex. Read More

  • Olivier Leflaive Chassagne Montrachet 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Unlike the winemaker notes' description, I found this Chardonnay unremarkable, somewhat bland, and with little aroma. I have had less expensive wines from Olivier Leflaive and other Chardonnays with much more power and resonance. Read More
