Burgundy

Located in central-eastern France in a lengthy north–south stretch from Dijon to Lyon, Burgundy is best known as the home of great Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. This is a region steeped in winemaking tradition, perfected by monks in the Middle Ages, who brought in new techniques for making and storing wine, and the skills they developed make some of the most sought-after wines of today

Both grapes are grown throughout the region, although you don’t often see the varieties named on the front label. The best (and most expensive) reds tend to come from the Côte de Nuits, with whites from the Côte de Beaune and Chablis. The Côte Chalonnaise and the Maconnais produce both red and white wines which tend to be more approachable, early drinking styles.

Burgundy can be a baffling region for wine drinkers, given the sheer number of villages and single vineyards, not to mention countless growers to get to know. Stick with us to explore the wonders of this fascinating region!
