Les Bressandes is a large 16.97-hectare Premier Cru climat within the Beaune appellation in Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune. The vineyard is located downhill from Les Mondes Rondes, in the prime portion of the northern sector where Dr. Lavalle designated the other “Têtes de Cuvées. ” At the top of the band of Premier Cru climats, Les Bressandes lies south of Les Marconnets. The name seems to derive from the onetime ownership of three women from the city of Bresse. Bressandes is generally considered among the top five or six finest Premiers Crus of Beaune. The vineyard faces east and lies on a steep slope, ranging from 240 to 320 meters, with sandy brown limestone soil. Les Bressandes is considered among the finest vineyards in Beaune and produces round and rich wines of considerable elegance.
