France is what many consider the "ultimate" place to grow wine grapes. It was not that long ago that most wine drinkers would solely drink wines which came from France. From the bubbly wines of Champagne to the rich, complex wines of Bordeaux and the delicate elegance of Burgundy, France is all about location and tradition.
Many of the names wine drinkers associated with France come from Burgundy. Chablis, Beaujolais, Macon, Côte de Beaune, Côte d'Or, they're all here. Located in eastern France, below Paris, Burgundy is often the sole stop of wine drinkers touring this country.
I took all of these photos myself from bottles I was drinking.
