CÔTE DE BEAUNE

Cassis was the first appellation in Provence recognized as AOC in 1936. It extends over just 200 hectares, planted in terraces overlooking the sea. The soils are mostly clay-limestone and shallow on the cliffs, where white wines are produced, and marly and deeper on the plateau, where rosé and some rare red cuvées are produced.
