Burgundy Wine

The historic vineyards of Burgundy lie in an arc from Auxerre to Lyon, with the heartland of the Côte d'Or situated to the north and south of Beaune. From Chablis in the north, through the Côte D'Or, Côte Chalonnaise, Maçonnais and finally Beaujolais, this region is the spiritual home of the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grape varieties. Extreme fragmentation of vineyards due to the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Law of Succession means that (particularly in the Côte d'Or) relatively small vineyards have multiple owners (of varying ability) and quantities of the best wines are miniscule.

Bamboozle wine bores with a profound understanding of Burgundy

Overview:
The historic vineyards of Burgundy lie in a 230km arc from Auxerre to Lyon, with the heartland of the Côte d'Or situated to the north and south of Beaune. From Chablis in the north, through the Côte D'Or, Côte Chalonnaise, Maçonnais and finally Beaujolais, this region is the spiritual home of the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grape varieties. Extreme fragmentation of vineyards due to the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Law of Succession means that (particularly in the Côte d'Or) relatively small vineyards have multiple owners (of varying ability) and quantities of the best wines are miniscule. The region enjoys a gastronomic and viticultural heritage that is unsurpassed.
