The best cheese to pair this wine with includes any soft and creamy cheeses including brie, camembert, morbier and many more. You can punctuate the tasting with a soup of fresh strawberries.

The vineyards occupy the exposed slopes to the south and southeast valleys, which have incised the limestone plateaus. The altitude is between 290 and 485 meters, which is 100 to 200 meters higher than the Côtes de Beaune. This allows for a later maturity. The subsoil is composed by formations deposited over 80 million years, during the Triassic (sandstone, clays) and the Jurassic (marls, limestones) periods.
