Burgundy - White
Burgundy (Bourgogne) encompasses a narrow vertical strip of land between Dijon and Lyon.

Burgundy produces some of the finest white wines in the world from the Chardonnay grape and great vineyards, including Bâtard-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet.

But knowing and finding good Burgundy is a tricky business due to its myriad of small, fragmented vineyard plots – a hangover from the Napoleonic Law of Succession – under which inherited land is divided equally among one’s children. Vineyard plots are therefore often split amongst many growers, and many have the same name (being related). It is therefore important to know the merits of the individual grower as well as the vineyard.
