Like its close neighbour and kin of the Beaune appellation, the red wine of the Côte de Beaune is a straight ruby colour with a hint of mauve highlights. The nose is straightforward (small red fruits and notes of animal, humus and underbrush), and preludes a round and seductive palate with just the right degree of acidity to ensure some keeping potential. Its texture is firm without severity, flavourful and captivating.
The white (from the Chardonnay grape) has everything that it should have : vivacity, brilliance, and intense gold colour. The bouquet features citrus and freshly-mown grass. Rounded and supple, it has good backing from the acidity. It charms the palate with its fruit plus a touch of minerality, and finishes, frequently, on hazelnut.
