The Burgundy vineyards

The 30,000 ha Burgundian vineyard extends as follows: 6,000 ha in the Yonne (for the Chablis wines), 8,000 in the Maconnais, 6,000 in the Cote Chalonnaise and 10,000 in the Cote d'Or (including the very famous Cote de Nuits, and Cote de Beaune). The Burgundy vineyard is fragmented as a mosaic made up of thousands of parcels (here called climats), often very small (as for instance La Romanee being the smallest designation in the world with 0.8 hectares), due to geological origin and a very diverse composition of soils often within the same locality. They are essentially sedimentary soils made up of clay, marl, limestone, deposited 150 million years ago in the Jurassic period on an even older substrate.

The characteristics of the wines from Burgundy

The grape varieties mainly planted in Burgundy are Pinot Noir for Burgundy reds, which can gives either light and elegant wines or powerful and full-bodied wines depending on the location of the parcel ; and Chardonnay for Burgundy whites, producing great dry, aromatic and ample wines. Other varietals are used to a lesser extent, such as Aligote, producing fresh and lively wines with lemony notes. Last but not least the Gamay, red grape variety, well grown on the granite soils of Beaujolais too. Pinot Noir, combined with Gamay gives a rustic and fruity wine, Passetoutgrains. The classification of Burgundy wines is as follows, from the most basic to the greatest: regional PDOs, villages PDOs, 1er Crus PDOs and Grands Crus PDOs, located in the upper part of the hills.
