Appellation: St Romain

A relatively recent appellation, granted in 1967, and the region's highest, the extremely picturesque village of St Romain is perched on top of a cliff in the Côte de Beaune behind Auxey-Duresses at between 300-400 metres above sea level. It is known predominantly for its white wines with a bit less than half of the total production red. Being high up and cool, ripening is not always easy but in the sunniest and warmest years the white wines can be very good quality and excellent value. Additionally the village is houses one of the region's pre-eminent coopers, François Frères.
