La Grande Rue is a famous, small, Grand Cru wine appellation in the Burgundy region of France. It covers a mere 1.65 hectares just over the road from the even more famous La Romanee and La Romanee Conti appellations. The vineyards fall within the famous commune of Vosne-Romanee and only red wines made from Pinot Noir can be produced here.
It is a relatively recent addition to the Grand Cru appellations within the commune of Vosne Romanee having been recognised in July 1992.
Wines are made from Pinot Noir which is the only permitted red grape, although small quantities of Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris or Chandonnay may be added to the Pinot.
