In the Middle Ages, the Duchy of Burgundy was an independent and prosperous state. Extensive vineyards were formed around the castle, which, after the French Revolution, were sold not as a whole, but in sections. Therefore, in the Burgundy wine is not made in chateau, as in Bordeaux, but in the domain (from the domain — “land”). In Burgundy, there is a huge number of small wine producers, and variety of wines is as huge. Noteworthy is the fact that there are not that many grapes varieties there.

The main variety, from which the majority of red wines are made is Pinot Noir; Gamay goes right after it. Chardonnay is mainly used for the production of white wines. Burgundy wines are mostly varietal, that means made from a single grape variety (as opposed to the blended wines of Bordeaux). Burgundy is the birthplace of the truly great wines that have received international recognition. In the sub-region of Chablis reference dry white wine Chablis is made, in Beaujolais — the perfect wine Beaujolais from Gamay grape is made. But the most valuable and expensive wines are made in the sub-region Cote d'Or (which means "golden slope").

In the Cote de Nuits region on the area of the size of a football field grape for the famous Romanee-Conti is grown, and in Cote de Beaune white Montrachet is produced. Burgundy wines are multifaceted. They absorb all the subtleties of terroir and the winemaker's personality. Discover fresh, light and amazingly delicious wines of Burgundy!

Burgundy (Bourgogne) is one of the most interesting and attractive wine-making regions of the world. Its glorious past, when the province was a small but powerful state provoke special interest. Its present, the time when it became the home of great, famous and expensive world wines is interesting too. The first vineyards in Burgundy were laid out in ancient times - it is known that in the era of the Gauls, they already existed. Over the past centuries, Burgundy wines not only won the world recognition, but were able to maintain its impeccable reputation.

Today, wines of Burgundy represent fascinating red wines from Pinot Noir and Gamay, and wonderful dry white wines from Chardonnay. Burgundy wines differ from Bordeaux wines by the usage of only one grape variety in its production — blends of different grape varieties are made very rarely.

Burgundy wine is also famous for making perfect ethno-gastronomic pairs with many dishes. By the way, the French themselves often prefer Burgundy red wine to other wines for lunch or dinner.
