Burgundy Fine Wines

Few wine regions in the world are synonymous with the words 'fine wine', but Burgundy is one. The best wines from Burgundy are among the most highly prized, and fantastically priced too.

Encompassing five wine regions, it's where you'll find France's top Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines. The words 'greatest' and 'grandest' scatter written descriptions of Burgundian wines. This region, between Dijon and Lyons, holds almost mystical appeal to those who worship its wines.

It's thanks to the pedestal upon which Burgundy's best wines are placed that both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir have travelled the globe. Winemakers around the world hold their wines up against the best of Burgundy in the hope that their efforts will at least contain some semblance of France's most exalted bottles.

That means it's rewarding territory for learning about wines, tasting and contrasting Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from both Burgundy and other countries' wine regions. There's no finer way to get to grips with wine's remarkable diversity.

Red fine wines from Burgundy have a grace, zest and energy, with memorable perfumes and flavours of raspberry and cherry. There's a finesse and grace found nowhere else. For the white fine wines of Burgundy, you have a range that goes from fresh, mouthwatering Chablis to opulent, deeply-flavoured Chardonnays, like Montrachet or Meursault.

For many wine lovers, Burgundy provides a lifetime of happy hunting and drinking. For all wine drinkers, at least a tentative delve into its wine treasures will have a long-lasting impact.
