Beaune Wine

Beaune

Beaune is an appellation created in 1936 when the appellation system began, although there has been viticulture here since at least the Romans,for both red and white wines [85% are red] from the commune of that name on the Cote de Beaune in southern Burgundy. It should not be confused with the Cote de Beaune appellation as that includes 18 communes including Beaune itself. At 12 sqare miles Beaune is the largest of those  communes. The town of Beaune is very much the centre of the Burgundy wine business and is home to some of the top negociant houses , including Drouhin, Bouchard  and Jadot. It is also the home of the Hospices de Beaune, a 15th century hospital used for an annual charity wine auction on the third Sunday in November.The vineyards around the city are planted mostly to Pinot Noir, and  42  of them are Premier Cru although there are no Grand Cru.
