A major Burgundian appellation, planted with Chardonnay for its white wines and Pinot Noir for its red wines, Beaune has 42 terroirs (climatic regions) classified as Premier Cru. The name of the wines of Beaune and Beaune Premier Cru are usually followed by the name of the climate of origin. All the red and white wines of the appellation have a grand balance and grace, but the Premiers Crus are full of body and spirit. Unlike the Bordeaux region, the vineyards of Burgundy are renowned for their red and white wines. As much for one as for the other both in Premier Cru and Grand Cru. These official distinctions for Burgundy are defined by the AOC law. Château de Meursault, Luis Jadot, Domaine Chanson Père et Fils or Bouchard Père et Fils exemplify the excellence of this outstanding appellation that draws the attention of the whole world.
