The Cote de Beaune is the southern half of Burgundy's famed Cote D'Or. Pinot Noir is THE red wine, informed by more than a thousand years of knowledge accrued by the Cistercian monks who cultivated this 'undesirable' farming land. It stretches from Ladoix north of the town of Beaune, all the way down to Maranges. Its red wines are most celebrated from the villages of Volnay, Pommard, Savigny-les-Beaune, Beaune, Chorey-les-Beaune, and Aloxe Corton.
