Regional appellation of the Couchois district (dept. of Saône-et-Loire).
The name CÔTES DU COUCHOIS may only be added to the word BOURGOGNE
in the case of red wines produced within the defined area of the appellation.
Producing communes : Couches, Dracy-lès-Couches, Saint-Jean-de-Trézy,
Saint-Maurice-lès-Couches, Saint-Pierre-de-Varennes, Saint-Sernin-du-Plain.
On the label, the words CÔTES DU COUCHOIS must immediately follow the
word BOURGOGNE in characters of the same size.
The colour is a straightforward but intense ruby tending slightly towards
purple. Its bouquet suggests small red fruits (strawberry, gooseberry) and
black fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry), followed by underbrush, mushroom,
fruit-pits, spice, leather and fur. In the mouth, the wine is hearty
and muscular. Extravagent, a touch rough in youth, but persistent and at the
top of its form after two or three years. This wine does a fine job representing
its « terroir » and posesses an authentic Burgundian soul.
Red : This wine is open, honest and direct by nature. It has a solid tannic
structure and a broad but light aromatic register. It is the ideal companion of
poultry pies, fried veal, quiches, and hamburgers. Barbecues and pork spare-ribs
honour its balanced directness and its black and red-fruit aromas. Choose
full-flavour cheeses such as Pont-l'Évêque, Époisses, or Vacherin.

FACT-SHEET No. 13
The Couchois disrict, lying south of the Maranges and south of the Hautes-
Côtes de Beaune, has been a wine-growing area since time immemorial.
This hilly part of the Saône-et-Loire has achieved recognition as a distinct
portion of the BOURGOGNE regional AOC (since the 2000 harvest) after a long
campaign to have its quality officially recognised. Its red wine from the Pinot
Noir grape is produced in the communes of Couches, Dracy-lès-Couches,
Saint-Jean-de-Trézy, Saint-Maurice-lès-Couches, Saint-Pierre-de-Varennes
L O C A T I O N
The vineyards lie on the clays and marls of the Upper Lias and amongst
the limestones of the Middle Jurassic. Good easterly and southerly exposures
provide excellent growing conditions for the Pinot Noir grape. These « terroirs »
are close neighbours of the southern portion of the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune
and lie at altitudes between 200 and 300 metres.
