Description: Burgundy is the anglicised name of Bourgogne, a region and province in the east of France which produces some of the finest wines in the world. The vineyards extend from Auxerre in the north almost as far as Lyon. Wines are produced in five regions, including Chablis, Côte d’Or (which includes Côte de Beaune and Côte-de-Nuits), Côte Chalonnaise and Mercurey, Mâconnais and Beaujolais. Famous wines from the region include Chablis, Fleurie, Gevrey-Chambertin, Meursault, Montagny and Pouilly-Fuissé. Dry wines such as Montrachet are among the finest in the world.
Red wines in Burgundy are lovely scented, smooth wines mainly made from Pinot Noir and Gamay grapes, while white wines are predominantly made with Chardonnay.
The region is also known for Dijon mustard, Charolais beef and cassis.
