A village with charm, no comparison
Above the villages of AUXEY-DURESSES and MEURSAULT, SAINT-ROMAIN is an appellation of the côte de BEAUNE to discover! It is one of the oldest villages in the Côte d'Or, as proof, its ruins date back to the Paleolithic! To reach the village, you take the BEAUNE / AUTUN road, and leave it by taking the direction of Saint Romain in a setting of vertiginous white and gray cliffs. SAINT-ROMAIN le haut dominates the landscape, perched on its rocky outcrop.
An ideal environment for wine
The singularity of the place partly explains the mineral and fresh character of the wines of the appellation: the vines sometime cling to steep slopes (between 300 and 400 meters of altitude for some) on a clay-limestone soil.
During the creation of the appellation in 1947, the vines were planted mainly in PINOT NOIR varieties. Today the distribution is 60% CHARDONNAY and 40% PINOT NOIR.
The SAINT-ROMAIN appellation does not present premiers crus wines, despite the beautiful reputation some climates have, such as "Sous le Chateau".
