Directory of Burgundy Wines

Côte Chalonnaise (112)

Côte ChalonnaiseThe vineyards stretch on a distance of 25 km between the Côte de Beaune in the North and the hills of Mâconnais in the South.

The slopes show vineyards of great charm around the villages of Montagny, Givry, Mercurey, Rully.

The soil is made of clay and limestone. The climate is semi-continental with very pleasant months of September that help the grapes ripening harmoniously.

The grape varieties are the noble ones of Burgundy : the Pinot Noir grows predominantly in Givry and Mercurey ; the Chardonnay is the main grape variety in Rully and it is even the only one in Montagny.

One must also know about the Aligoté grape in the village of Bouzeron that gives an excellent result in this viticultural area.

The Côte Chalonnaise is able to produce high quality wines at reasonable prices. Many vineyards are classified as Premiers Crus and their wines are really worth a try.

Côte de Beaune (618)

Côte de BeauneVineyards stretch on 20 kilometers between the village of Ladoix-Serrigny and the growth « Maranges » in the South.

The strip of vineyards can beat times very narrow, as it is no more as 200 to 300 meters wide.

The most prestigious white great growths (Grands Crus) like Montrachet, or Corton-Charlemagne are located in this Côte de Beaune, though there are also highly reputable reds like Pommard, Volnay, Aloxe-Corton and of course Beaune, the historical capital of Burgundy wines.

We have also to mention the charm of white growths like Meursault, Chassagne-Montrachet or Puligny-Montrachet.

The region offers top class wines, but also other excellent value wines at reasonable prices in lesser known villages like Pernand-Vergelesses, Savigny-les-Beaune, Chorey-les-Beaune, Monthelie, Auxey-Duresses, Santenay, Saint-Aubin, Maranges.

The only reason often is that the names are less easy to memorize.

The soil is made of marly limestones and clay with a favourable East, South East exposure.

The climate offers warm summers with cool nights and a warm month of September that is crucial for the ripeness of the grapes .

Apart from Pommard and Volnay that only producered wines, the two noble grape varieties can be found in the other villages, with differences according to each« terroir ».

Côte de Nuits (288)

Côte de NuitsVineyards cover a narrow strip of land that streches on twenty kilometers starting in Marsannay, just South of Dijon, and going down South to the village of Corgoloin.

The width of the vineyards is only 200 to 300 meters.

This viticutural area shows most of the greatest red wines of Burgundy, like the famous Grands Crus Chambertin, Romanée Saint-Vivant, Clos-Vougeot, and so on…

As early as the 10th centry, the Cistercian monks have worked hard in order to build up the quality and the fame of this Côte de Nuits region.

Numerous excellent Premiers Crus Vineyards are also located in well-known villages like Vosne-Romanée, Gevrey-Chambertin, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Chambolle-Musigny, Morey-Saint-Denis.

The soil is made of clay and limestone and drainage is perfect.

The climate is semi-continental with hot summers, but cool nights. The exposure of the vineyards is facing East or South-East depending on the growths.

This is why the noble grape variety Pinot Noir gives the greatest red wines in the  world, although the region lies fairly up North in comparison with other viticultural areas in the world.

Le Chablisien : The Chablis region (13)

Le Chablisien : The Chablis regionThe vineyards of Chablis are located in the Northern part of Burgundy. They are planted  on gentle slopes along the river Serein. The wines from Chablis are produced in about twenty villages. The soil is made of clay and limestone.

The climate is rather cold during the winter and can reach warm temperatures during the day in summer : spring frosts are frequent and wine-growers have learnt how to protect their vines thanks to big candles or by sprinkling water.

The grape variety is exclusively the noble chardonnay grape that combines with the « terroir » in order to give the most well-known dry white wine in the world. 

Many vineyards are classified as Premiers Crus (First Growths) and there are also remarkable Grands Crus (Great Growths) that can age wonderfully.

Mâconnais (123)

MâconnaisThe vineyards stretch on 35 km from the village of Sennecey-le-Grand down to Saint-Vérand.

The Mâconnais hills are touristically very appealing : Thanks to the Roman tiles, the ohcre colour of the houses, and its historical small churches, the region offers a warm atmosphere. Certain hills can be very steep, for example in Solutré.

The climate is continental with warm summers and the harvest takes place sooner than in the Côte d’Or.

The predominant grape variety is the Chardonnay that covers 80% of the planted surface. The Gamay grape covers the remaining 20%.

The white wines of this region are a perfect introduction to the great white Burgundies at often very reasonable prices : the white Mâcon offer fruit and roundness, the Saint-Véran and the Viré-Clessé combine fruit with an elegant structure, Pouilly-Fuissé and Pouilly-Vinzelles reach a high level of elegance and finesse.
