WINES OF BURGUNDY

Burgundy (Bourgogne) is a region located in east central France. The region's core is the fertile Rhone and Saone river valleys. Dijon, a city famous for its gastronomy, is the historic capital. Burgundy's wines are among the world's most distinguished.
A few of the finest wines in the world come from this region. The soil is extremely varied, but most of the land under vine has a limestone subsoil. Chalky topsoil provides a good environment for the Chardonnay from which most of Burgundy's white wines are made, while areas richer in marl are well suited for red wine production, which in Burgundy is dominated by the Pinot Noir variety.

Whites : Chardonnay
