Burgundy Wine

Bourgogne is perhaps the most complex and intimidating of French wine regions. 
It enjoys an exceptional geographical location, but it has plenty of other things going for it. Perfect weather for growing grapes, rich soils, renowned varietals and its remarkable Climats all combine to produce its 84 appellations that are recognized around the world. Not forgetting the expertise of its winegrowers, who hand down their know-how from generation to generation, whilst remaining up-to-speed with all the latest developments
The first to begin to recognize and codify the differences between vineyards were the Cistercian monks. They helped give us our notion of terroir. Most of the vineyards belonged to the church and nobility until the French Revolution, when they were redistributed and often split between several proprietors. They were further fragmented because of the inheritance law in the Napoleonic Code, which decreed that vineyards must be split equally among one’s heirs Read more »

    Wine review by abeth

  • Vignerons de Buxy Chardonnay 2007


    The bottle design suggests a completely unspectacular wine and its not far off. Pale straw in colour but quite sharp in acidity although bold melon and apple flavours come through. Not one I will be coming back to. Read More
