The wine
This appellation is well known as Renardes, because its wines are always very rich with animal, leather and black fruit notes.

Terroir
This vines sprout on a soil very limestone on the bottom of the hill and more clay on the top, instead of the rest of the Côte de Beaune. This feature is due to a limestone flaw which is located on the middle of the plot and which reappears limestone of mother rock more importantly on the lower part of the hillside of Renardes.
