In 1395 Philippe le Hardi forbade the cultivation of the Gamay and favored that of the Pinot Noir to improve the quality of the wines. Red, white and rosé wines are produced as AOC Bourgogne. The regional appellation extends over more than 2,500 hectares from the department of the Yonne to the Rhône region and running through the Côte-d’Or.
This wine is a blend of different plots of Côtes de Nuits. There are some Villages appellations in this Bourgogne Pinot Noir. That’s where this wine finds its high quality.
