Beaune "Les Epenottes"

Domaine du Pavillon


Côte de Beaune


AOC Village

Grape variety

Pinot noir

Beaune is the historic capital of Burgundy wines and its town centre has been the site of the headquarters of the House of Albert Bichot for over a century now.
In addition to capturing the attention of the entire world on the 3rd Sunday of every November when it hosts the legendary Hospices de Beaune wine auction, it is also one of the largest appellations in surface area in the Côte de Beaune. Though less well known than its illustrious neighbours, this appellation nevertheless offers many terroirs of great interest for their balance and diversity.
In the southern part of the appellation, "Les Epenottes" is located on the border with that of Pommard. It yields wines that boast similar robustness to its celebrated Pommard Epenots neighbour, but with a more feminine aspect, a finer, subtly silky structure.
Most of the names of Climats derived from the word "épine" (thorn) refer to places where trees, shrubs, and thorny brambles grew before the vines were planted.


Elegant nose featuring notes of red fruit (cherry, raspberry…) along with delicate toasted nuances. The palate is generous and full bodied, supported by pronounced structure with well-integrated tannins. Lovely finish with notes of liquorice and violet.
