Burgundy Wine Information



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.

Burgundy is known as Bourgogne in France, and has a long history in winemaking. Each sub-region of Burgundy is so different from each other that it is hard to address the region as a whole, and to make any sweeping generalities. The flinty, classic Chablis flavor is made solely with Chardonnay grapes, while the freshness of Beaujolais Nouveau comes from the fruity Gamay.

Visit a page on a particular region of Burgundy to learn more abuot the wines that are made there!
