Beaune vineyards are the most extensive of the Cote de Beaune, between Savigny to the North, and Pommard to the South. There are no Grand Cru vineyards in this commune, but 36 Premiers Crus.
The red wines from the central and southern parts are powerful, tannic, and deeply colored. Those from the northern area are generally less intensely colored with softer fruit flavors. Beaune 1er Cru "Bressandes" is situated between "Greves" and "Cent Vignes", in the North part.
