Beaune vineyards are the most extensive of the Côte de Beaune, between Savigny to the North, and Pommard to the South. There are no Grand Cru vineyards in this commune, but 42 Premiers Crus.

The red wines from the central and southern parts are powerful, tannic, and deeply coloured. Those from the northern area are generally less intensely coloured with softer fruit flavours. Beaune 1er Cru is made from different premiers crus coming from small vineyards like Tuvilains, Pertuisots, Sizies etc. and are vinified by Louis Jadot.

Fermentation is made as natural as possible in open tanks (without stems). It usually undergoes fairly long fermentation (25 to 33 days) in order to extract colour, tannins and aromas. The different premiers crus are vinified separately and then aged in wooden barrels for 15-18 months. The blending will be done at the very end.

This Premier Cru is an elegant wine, quite full in body with red and black fruit aromas and spices. It has a mellow texture with good tannins which will help it to age well. It will perfectly accompany delicate meat dishes as well as most cheeses.

It will easily age 10-15 years in good cellaring conditions.
