Burgundy has no parallel. Many have tried to capture the finesse and depth of Burgundian Chardonnay and Pinot Noir but when it comes to the ultimate expression of these two varieties, nothing compares to Burgundy.
That’s not to say Burgundy is purely a fine wine producer; with vines spanning close to 100 appellations, 3,000 producers and 26,000 hectares, there is inevitably huge diversity of styles and quality.
The Burgundy wine region is split into six areas and fine wine lovers tend to zone in on a narrow slice of limestone to the south of mustard-making capital Dijon: the Côte d’Or. The northerly half of the Côte d’Or is known as the Côte de Nuits and is best known for its peerless Pinot Noir from villages including Vosne-Romanée, Gevrey-Chambertin and Nuits-Saint-Georges.
The majority of the Côte de Beaune’s vineyards lie to the south of the town of Beaune and it is perhaps best known for its whites from around the villages of Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault although it is also home to red-wine appellations Pommard and Volnay.
