The appellation, named after the municipality of the same name, is located in the Côte de Beaune part of the Burgundian region Cote d'Or, It connects to the community Volnay on. The Cistercian already had vineyards here in the 12th century. The clergyman Claude Arnoux (1695-1770) described this wine in his famous book "La Situation de la Bourgogne". The vineyards cover 313 hectares of vineyards. Almost exclusively red wines are made Pinot Noir with shares of Pinot Liébault (a Pinot Noir clone) and Pinot gris vinified. As a reason that they are among the best known of the Burgundy count, the easy-to-pronounce name is repeatedly mentioned. Simply referring to this would be unfair because they are undeniably among the best. There are around 30 premier crus with 128 hectares of vineyards. The best locations include Chanlins, Épenots, Fremiers, Jarolières, Pézerolles and above all (in terms of quality actually Grand Cru) Rugiens. Well-known producers are Bichot (Domaine du Pavillon), Billard-Gonett, Boillot, Château Pommard, Comte Armand, Hospices de Beaune Lejeune Domaine Leroy, Machard de Gramont, Montille and Pothier-Rieusset.
