Burgundy

A Wine for Lovers


Genuine Burgundy comes from a long stretch of winefields running from Dijon in the north to Lyon in the south.

The COTE d'OR is the heartland of Burgundy with the majority of the renowned vineyards.
It is divided in two by a break in the mountains - the northern part being the COTE de NUITS, the southern part the COTE de BEAUNE.

White Burgundies from the COTE de BEAUNE include
Puligny Montrachet,Le Montrachet and Meursault.

The COTE de NUITS famous commune names are Fixin, Moray Saint-Denis, Vosne-Romanee, La Tache and Nuits-Saint-Georges.

The COTE du RHONE stretches from Lyon down to Avignon.
Chateauneuf-du-Pape,Hermitage (and the finest French Rose) - Tavel are the most famous.
