French term (also Côtes or Coteaux, in German "Hang") for vineyards in mostly a pronounced hillside location with plenty of sunlight and optimal exposure. In France this is often included in Appellation designations, for example Coteaux Champenois, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, Coteaux Varois, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuits, Côte Chalonnaise, Côte Rôtie, Côtes de Provence, Côtes du Rhône, Côtes du Rhône-Villages and Côtes du Roussillon. However, vineyards with flatter sites may also be located in the corresponding areas. Other designations for areas of outstanding quality are Climat, Clos, Cru and Lieu-dit.
