Pommard, Ladoix, and Volnay — the gateway to Côte de Beaune is an indisputable land of Pinot Noir. With ideal soils and exposure to the sun, the distinct terroirs of the area proved to be a perfect fit for red wines. Yet, it is Chardonnay that lent prestige to the vineyard. From the village of Santenay to the slopes of the Hill of Corton, Côte de Beaune is home to the grandest white wines. Eight Grands Crus take roots in this 20 kilometers-long wine-growing region.
