Beaune is a village that dates back to the Roman times and archaelogical evidence supports the plantation of vines around the town at that time. Beaune wines from the northern section tend to be more fruity and those at the southern end are more tannic. Our wines are in the middle section and exhibit a balanced Beaunois style.

Our 0.63 hectare site fnurturing 45 year old vines is located west of the village up the slope towards 'la montagne' and has iron rich clay soil. Certain historical documents record that this was "champs de M. Pimonts", the "field of Mr. Pimonts"; others believe the vineyard name means "field at the foot of the hill".
This medium dark ruby colored wine underlies the bright aromas of raspberry and violets. The bright fruit profile and balanced mid-palate leads to subtle minerality in the finish.
Ideally served at 15 - 16 C/ 59- 61 F, this cheerful wine pairs well with pork and poultry, mussels, shrimp, and roasted chicken and potatoes, as well as grilled asperagus or Brussels sprouts. It nicely complements regional cheeses including Delice de Bourgogne, Morbier, and Comte.
