Burgundy

Burgundy

Burgundy is the most northerly fine red wine region in Europe. It runs from Auxerre in the north to Macon in the south and the climate is characterised by cold winters and hot summers.   The Cote d'Or is where the most famous Burgundy's originate, grown from pinot noir and chardonnay grapes, on a strip of land 40km long and in some places only 2km wide.  Tiny villages are surrounded by hilly vineyards - the Grand Cru vineyards occupy the highest slopes.

Burgundy has a high number of AOC's (appellations d'origine controlee) and is probably the most terroir oriented region in France with numerous different types of soil and as a result it's classifications are geographically based.  Over the generations some domaines have been sub-divided giving rise to many small producers, harvesting their grapes from tiny plots. 

Burgundian wines are some of the worlds finest.   The pinot noir grape produces aromatic wines that are lighter in colour than Bordeaux wines, with higher acidity and light tannins.  Top red Burgundy is at its best, served cool - it is perfumed and delicate with refreshing flavours of apples and raspberries.  As the wine ages it takes on more earthy aromas.

Domaines to look out for - DRC (Domaine de la Romanee-Conti), Emmanuel Rouget, Armand Rousseau, Dugat-Py, Leroy, Henri Jayer and Leflaive.
