Grape varieties

Pinot Noir

Region

Burgundy is the region where Pinot Noir and Chardonnay rule in France. In the northeast – and at the limit of successful ripening - this region calls its wine estates domaines rather than chateaux.

The area divides into sub regions: the Cote d’Or and, going south, the Cote Chalonnaise and Maconnais. The Cote d’Or is further divided into the northern Cote de Nuits, from which come the great reds of the region, produced on the escarpment, and the Cote de Beaune, which produces Burgundy’s most esteemed whites. In fact, Chardonnay here makes what is widely considered to be the finest, full-bodied dry white wines in the world. And, of course, who can forget Chablis? This appellation, producing steely, dry white wines in Burgundy’s most northerly vineyards, is now virtually a generic.

Style

Almost akin to a white, the wines in this category feature the Gamay grape from Beaujolais. Tend to be pale red in colour with refreshing redcurrant and red berry fruit flavours. Great at lunchtime or served slightly chilled in the summer. Will go down well with non-red wine drinkers.
