General information:

Viticultural Burgundy covers five regions:

Total production from 26,500 hectares of vines, which equates to 200 million bottles of wine.

Production is two thirds white wine to one third red wine.

Some answers to your questions about burgundy:

a) the attributes of a great red burgundy ?

- the soil and exposition of the vineyard;

- low yields;

- a hospitable growing season;

- winemaking;

b) Why are the best burgundies prohibitively expensive ?

The pricing of burgundy can be explained entirely by the rules of supply and demand. Truly microscopic quantities of wine offereed by the best producers and a worldwide demand.

c) What are the significant differences in the wines of the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits ?

The red wines of the Côte de Nuits tend to be fuller, slightly more tannic and are characterized by a more earthy, black fruit and exotic character than those  from the Côte de Beaune. Indeed, the wines from Côte de Beaune tend to offer slighlty less body, less tannin and seem to filled with aromas and flavors of red fruits.

While the Côte de Nuits produces only a handful of white wines, of which a few are superlative, the Côte de Beaune produces the world's greatest wines from the Chardonnay grape.

  • Chablis

    The Chablis wine district produces white wines only, 100 percent Chardonnay.

    Chablis is one district for which you must pay particularly close attention to vintages. In a good vintage, however, Chablis can be magical: pale straw in color with hints of green, turning light gold with age; bone dry and medium-bodied, with lively acidity that makes the wine great with seafood; concentrated in delicate, minerally aromas and an appley flavor that lingers long after you swallow.

    Chablis has a distinctly different appellation system from the rest of Burgundy.

    • Petit Chablis

    • Chablis

    • Chablis Premier Cru

    • Chablis Grand Cru

    The are only 7 Grands Crus, and they sit on what is the filet mignon of the Chablis region.

    Les Clos (61.1 acres) - This vineyard, the most famous Grand Cru of Chablis, is superbly situated between Blanchot and Valmur. Les Clos frequently has excellent acidity, superb depth, power, and richness, but it is stony, mineral-like precision to its flavors that sets it apart from on the the Côte d'Or top white burgundies. The great examples of Les Clos, often seem immortal and are capable of lasting 15-20 years.

    Blanchot (30.1 acres) - Situated southeast of the other Grands Crus, Blanchot produces wines that are among the most delicate, perfumed, are stylish of all the Grands Crus.
