Burgundy

One of France’s most northernmost and coolest regions, Burgundy’s smoky wines are among some of the most prized wines in the world. Most Burgundy whites are made from Chardonnay, while most reds are made from Pinot Noir.

Burgundy wines are classified by the region or sub-region, with the most prestigious including the vineyard that they originate from. Generally the more specific the location on the label the finer the wine, but vintage is also important when assessing quality.
