Burgundy - Red
Burgundy's wine region (Bourgogne) encompasses a narrow vertical strip of land between Dijon and Lyon.

Pinot Noir is the red wine producing grape synonymous with red Burgundy. It is a notoriously fickle grape, a real challenge for both winegrower and winemaker, who must work hard and intelligently to unravel the wonderful gamey, complex, intense and silky nuances that it is often so reluctant to reveal. It rarely likes to travel from its native Côte de Nuits district, where it is renowned for producing some of the world’s finest red wines.

Comte Georges de Vogüé is at the pinnacle of Burgundian Pinot Noir. The current owner, Elizabeth, Baronne Bertrand de Ladoucette, represents the 20th generation of the same family to be the head of what is arguably Burgundy’s longest wine dynasty. Elizabeth’s successful formula is based upon applying the best of traditional knowledge with modern techniques to her limestone-based vines. The soil contributes to the domaine's light, feminine style of Pinot renowned for its elegance, concentration and refinement.
