  • Found amongst the northern vineyards of Beaune, this excellent site overlooks the medieval fortified town of Beaune, that remains to this day the wine capital of Burgundy. Burgundy vineyards named Les Grèves generally designate soils formed of loose rock, fine scree, sand and gravel which are particularly favourable to the cultivation of vines. Our vineyards are located on the gentle slopes of the hill of Beaune next the vineyard of Les Teurons. The clay and limestone soils of Les Grèves suit the Chardonnay grape and contribute to making this wine one of the fullest and richest of the Beaune appellations.
