Mainly Pinot Noir is grown for red wines and Chardonnay for white wines in Burgundy. Each appellation and each field, known as "Cru," has its own character and style, which results in wines that vary from light and delicate to powerful and complex. Burgundy's complex hierarchy includes Grand Cru, Premier Cru and regionals appellations, reflecting the quality of the vines and the soil.


Burgundy's wine culture is deeply rooted in tradition and craftsmanship, and many wine producers are family-run, often with generations of experience behind them. The natural variation in the climate and the soil creates a diversity of tastes.


Burgundy wines are known for their elegant character, complexity and ability to evolve beautifully with age. From the iconic red wines such as Romanée-Conti to the seductive white wines such as Montrachet, Burgundy continues to seduce wine lovers the world over over with its unique and refined wine production.
