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.

  • Not talking of anecdotes, Fox, but of directly, personally observed and participated-in experience. An anecdote for you, perhaps, but not for me and what I know of reality. And the personal example I used was very pertinent to the judgment of Willamette/Cote d'Or (or whatever it was or should be called) example referred to above. If desired I ca... Read More

  • Utter, unmitigated rubbish, not to put too fine a point on it.Chablis has been a hotbed of oak vs steel controversy for three decades now (notice that's only the tip of the iceberg in historical terms for the region--before that, plenty of oak). Major figures lead the attack from both sides of the divide, trying to make names for themselves. At ... Read More

  • Actually, pretty much zero since the end of February.  I am trying to wind down a slightly large collection of Bordeaux and Rhone wines, so expect to see a few reviews from time to time reflecting this objective.  Most "new" purchases for me and mine are restricted to high-end BC wines (mostly Blue Mountain) plus a few white Bordeaux, and Cote d...
