What makes each Burgundy wine different?

In Burgundy, one of the most important factors in making a good wine is soil. The quality of the soil is the main reason why there are three levels and price points between a Village, a premier Cru, and a Grand Cru wine. Another major factor that differentiates each wine is the vinification procedure the winemaker uses- the recipe. It’s the same as if you were to compare the chefs at three gourmet restaurants: They may start out with the same ingredients, but it’s what they do with those ingredients that matters.
