Production area

”Hautes-Côtes” refers to a regional appellation that is grown in 48 villages in Burgundy. The Hautes-Côtes region runs behind and parallel to Burgundy’s “Côte des Grands Crus” at high altitudes (300 to 400 m as opposed to 250 to 350 m), which gives it its name “Hautes” meaning “high”. The Hautes-Côtes de Nuits cover a surface area of 698,57 hectares of which 576,22 hectares are planted with red grapes.


Located west of and parallel to the Côte de Nuits, the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits are made up of higher hills, interspersed with faults, resulting in a diverse landscapes and agricultural activities. The vineyards are often found at the end of logging roads where a few rows of vines planted on a hillside between the woods and meadows seek out the sun. What also makes the Hautes-Côtes unique is the original way in which the vines are grown – high and wide – making them less sensitive to frost than low-trained vines.
