wine description

Located in the heart of the winegrowing area, Beaune is indisputably its capital. It is home to centuries of history with treasures of architecture and art, among which the 15th century Hôtel-Dieu is the jewel in the crown. Almost all of the underground area in the city is a labyrinth of underground cellars.

It seems that the name Beaune comes from Belenos, the Gallic god considered as being similar to the Greek god Apollo by the Romans. The locality must have been a place of worship to this god. Belenos also means shining and Beaune would then come close to a hydronym: clean (water). Our wine comes from 80-year-old vines, located in Beaune within the climate called Aux Cras. Facing East/South-East and at an altitude of 250 to 300 metres, they are planted in a shallow soil made up of brown limestone, out of altered Ladoix limestone, splitting into 2-cm thick chips, filled with pieces of shells.

Les Cras comes from the medieval word crai which means stony land.
