Côte de Beaune

Name for the southern half of the Côte d'Or area in Burgundy. Confusingly, however, this does not cover the entire area, but only four vineyards above the town of Beaune with 35 hectares of vineyards on calcareous soils. Red wines from Pinot Noir and white wines from Chardonnay are permitted.
