ORIGIN

The Burgundy appellation covers 384 communes in the Yonne, Côte d’Or, Saône-et-Loire and Rhône départements. Beginning in the Chablis and Auxerrois region in the north, stretching south to the Macon area through Côte d’Or and the Côte Chalonnaise, the Burgundy Appellation comes from a great diversity of soils. In the North, the wines are bright and fragrant whilst in the South they take on more structure.

Our red Burgundies are made from a blend of grapes from the Côte Chalonnaise and the Côte de Beaune that provide fruit and roundness, and from the Auxerrois region for freshness.

Varied soils with calcareous hills that are sometimes chalky or Kimmeridgian in the North, marly chalk on the Côte d’Or and clay marl with hints of granite in Saône-et-Loire.

VARIETAL

Red Burgundy wines are made from Pinot Noir grapes.
