More info about wine from Bourgogne: Many of the best wines in the world are produced in Burgundy. The wine is famous for its elegance and subtle notes. The wine region stretches - in broad terms - from between the cities of Dijon and Mâcon, along the river Saône. Naturally we should not forget Chablis that is located to the south-east of Paris. From north to south Bourgogne is divided into Chablis, Côte-d'Or (Côtes De Nuits & Côte De Beaune), Côte Chalonnaise & Mâconnais. Although we should point out that Beaujolais - extremely popular in France and with its own unique character - also belongs to the region by extension. The dominant grapes are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. For Chablis we should point out that - despite the fact that it is white wine - Chablis Grand Cru only needs a few years before it is ready to drink. They can also easily be kept for 20 years. Côtes de Nuits is mainly known for its AOC Marsannay, AOC Gevrey-Chambertin, AOC Vosne-Romanée, not forgetting AOC Nuits-Saint-Georges and AOC Vougeot. AOC Vosne-Romanée is absolutely world class and is the most famous and most expensive region in Bourgogne. It is the ultimate wine for laying down. In the Côtes de Beaune we find the notorious AOC Aloxe-Corton, AOC Pommard, AOC Meursault (with its beautiful yellow colour and delicious aftertaste), AOC Chassagne-Montrachet and many more. From Côte Châlonnaise we are mainly familiar with AOC Rully and AOC Mercurey. In de Côte Mâconnais the AOC Pouilly-Fuissé & AOC Saint-Véran reach a grand old age. So you have understood: the Bourgogne wine region is highly fragmented, but this may be the reason why it produces some of the ultimate world-class wines. It is important to note that in Bourgogne people often use so-called negotiators (trade houses) in which - originally- grapes from different, smaller, vineyards were combined.
