Côte d'Or is the most famous wine region of Burgundy and consists of Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune.
Côte de Nuits produces world class, iconic Pinot Noir with over 20 Grand Cru vineyards. The top of the Pinot Noir line from Burgundy is found here, with wines worthy of aging for decades and prices carrying four and five digits for the crème de la crème.
Côte de Beaune enjoys a 70/30 split of reds to whites. However, it's typically the white wines (again exclusively from Chardonnay grapes) that make their mark with rich aromas, fuller bodies, and earthy herbal undertones overlaid by ripe pear and apple character.
