Wine of Beaune appellation
Established in 1936, Beaune and Beaune Premier Cru are village appellations around the town of the same name, in the Côte d'Or. The appellation may be followed on wine labels by the name of the climat (vineyard site) where the wine was grown. There are 42 premier cru climats here, the most noteworthy of which include Clos des Mouches, Clos des Ursules, Clos du Roi, Les Toussaints, and Les Grèves. 

An emblem of Burgundy and its “wine capital”, Beaune draws oenophiles from all over the world for its famous annual wine auction. It also boasts one of the largest vineyard areas of the entire Côte d'Or, covering more than 400 hectares (988 acres) of vineyards that produce over 12,000 hectoliters of wine annually. About two thirds of this area is classed premier cru. The soils high on the slopes are limestone; the mid-slopes are Upper Jurassic marl; and the lower slopes are a blend of limestone and clay. The premier cru vineyards range from full east to full south exposure. 

Made from Pinot Noir, red Beaune and Beaune Premier Cru wines were already famous in the Middle Ages for their fiery, youthful character and generous bouquet. The rare white wines show off the best terroirs for Chardonnay. Magnificent Beaune Premier Crus can be found at Maison Bouchard Père et Fils, Domaine Dominique Laurent, Domaine de la Vougeraie, Domaine Chanson Père et Fils, and Maison Joseph Drouhin.
