Cote d'Or Red

The Côte d'Or (usually translated as "Golden Slope," but more likely a truncated version of Côte d'Orient, or "east[-facing] slope") runs roughly from Dijon south to just past Beaune and is marked by alluvial deposits of limestone and marl. It is further bifurcated into northern and southern sectors, the Côte de Nuits the Côte de Beaune, respectively.

The Côte de Nuits produces red wine almost exclusively, while production in the Côte de Beaune is split relatively evenly between red and white.   More
