Burgundy

Burgundy wine is wine is a light to medium bodied red wine made in the Burgundy region in France. The most famous wines produced here - those commonly referred to as Burgundies - are red wines made from Pinot Noir grape and whites produced from Chardonnay. The region also produces wines made from aligoté, gamay and very small amounts of pinot blanc and pinot gris, as well as sparkling wines called Crémant de Bourgogne. The main production zones within Burgundy are the Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuits, Côte Chalonnaise, Mâconnais and Chablis. Each of these zones is subdivided into numerous appellations, "lieux-dits" (place names), premier crus and grands crus, in a complex hierarchical system based on topography, climate and history.
