Finding your way through Burgundy's maze of labels - sorting village from vineyard from producer - is the first step towards appreciating its glorious products and drinking them is an experience second-to-none. In a nutshell: Burgundy is a small, dynamic, sometimes infuriatingly confusing region that delivers paradise in a bottle with increasing frequency. JANCIS ROBINSON
The Spiritual home of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Burgundy is a mosaic of vineyards located to the South-East of Paris. With dizzying prices and increasing scarcity, it is a fabled region that makes many a devout wine lover weak at the knees. Mapped out by monks over centuries, Burgundy is the template of ‘terroir’, the idea that specific plots of dirt result in astonishingly different wines due to environmental factors such as soil, aspect, altitude, and wind.
Although place plays such an integral part in great Burgundy, and it would be easy to reach for the words Location, Location, Location… it is a region where the words Producer, Producer, Producer have never been more important.
To understand this confusing contradiction and unravel many more, we welcome you to come discover the famous villages, iconic vineyards and elite producers of this exhalated region with us!
