Cote d'Or Wine Information

Cote d'Or is not a grape name, but in France they often refer to region names as if they defined the grapes within. If you say "Bordeaux" you generally have a sense of what grapes you're talking about. The Cote d'Or in Burgundy is a bit more confusing because it's actually two different banks of a limestone escarpment in Burgundy. Each grows different types of grapes. There are both red and white grapes involved.

For some reason, this small region makes stellar wines. It's just something about the land, the soil, the weather, and that magical "terroir" that exists there.
