The Grapes of Burgundy

Image

There are two major grape varieties used in Burgundy. 

White: Chardonnay

Major grape. Used to make everything from simple wines like- pouilly-Fuisse and St Veran to Burgundy’s most profound and lush whites, including the wines of Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet, and Meursault.

Red: Pinot Noir

All of the red wines are made from this variety, including humble reds, such as Montagny and Givry, as well as the world-renowned wines from such places as Chambolle- Musigny, Aloxe-Corton, Vougeot, and Vosne Romanee.
