France – Burgundy

Burgundy (Bourgogne) is one of the top French wine regions producing a range of wine styles and prices. The wines include crisp Chablis in the north to the classic red and white burgundies from the Côte d’Or. The vineyards in Burgundy tend to be smaller than Bordeaux

Burgundy is renowned for its prestigious and expensive wines produced in the north and easy-drinking wines crafted in the south. The majority of Burgundy’s production – and the best way to get fantastic value for money –  is labelled Bourgogne Rouge and Bourgogne Blanc, which is used for classic, straightforward and easy-drinking wines made with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay respectively. 

Though technically part of Burgundy, Chablis and Beaujolais are essentially their own regions with their own unique personalities. Chablis is known for refreshingly crisp, austere white wines made from Chardonnay whilst Beaujolais is famed for light, soft and fruity reds predominantly using Gamay.

Burgund wine bottle

The Bourgogne region enjoys an exceptional geographical location, but it has plenty of other things going for it. Perfect weather for growing grapes, rich soils, renowned varietals and its remarkable Climats all combine to produce its 100 appellations that are recognized around the world. Not forgetting the expertise of its winegrowers, who hand down their know-how from generation to generation, whilst remaining up-to-speed with all the latest developments.

The region’s Climats are a unique phenomenon that was recognized by UNESCO in July 2015.

Over the past 2,000 years, the Bourgogne winegrowing region has benefited from the experience of men and women, from the observation of the soil, and from the region’s unique microclimates. This has given rise to a patchwork of plots whose qualities have been identified and acknowledged: the Climats and lieux-dits.
