 Our Wines by Region - Burgundy
Burgundy

Burgundy wine (FrenchBourgogne or vin de Bourgogne) is wine made in the Burgundy region in eastern France, in the valleys and slopes west of the Saône River, a tributary of the Rhône. The most famous wines produced here—those commonly referred to as "Burgundies"—are dry red wines made from Pinot noir grapes and white wines made from Chardonnay grapes. Red and white wines are also made from other grape varieties, such as Gamay and Aligoté, respectively. Small amounts of rosé and sparkling wines are also produced in the region. Chardonnay-dominated Chablis and Gamay-dominated Beaujolais are formally part of the Burgundy wine region, but wines from those subregions are usually referred to by their own names rather than as "Burgundy wines".

Burgundy has a higher number of appellations d'origine contrôlée (AOCs) than any other French region, and is often seen as the most terroir-conscious of the French wine regions. The various Burgundy AOCs are classified from carefully delineated Grand Cru vineyards down to more non-specific regional appellations. The practice of delineating vineyards by their terroir in Burgundy goes back to medieval times, when various monasteries played a key role in developing the Burgundy wine industry.

Bourgogne Rouge 2016 (#49-25)
$0.00

Relatively pale in color, the aromas of red fruits permeate the nose. A very drinkable wine, this Pinot Noir will not be a challenge to your bank balance.  Fresh, lively with soft tannins and good acidity, it will be a very suitable pairing for most dishes.

Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir

Moreau 1er Cru Vaillons 2015 (#50-19)
$34.75

This Premier Cru wine is very generous, fleshy and lively. Its very poor terroir, composed of clay and calcareous marls, reveals its minerality and vivacity, so typical of the Chablis appellation, not to mention an aromatic concentration due to the old vines which give the wines their roundness and richness.

Grape: Chardonnay 100%


Region: Burgundy Vineyard:  Louis Moreau
On Sale Moreau Chablis 2016 (#50-20)
$21.00 $0.00

This Chablis shows a nice brilliant golden color, while its nose is floral with a hint of white fruit (apple, pear). According to the vintage, its gustatory attack can express mineral and citrus notes, balanced by its roundness and fineness.

Grape: Chardonnay 100%

Moreau1er Cru Fourneaux Chablis 2014 (#50-15)
$0.00

This subtle and fine wine expresses a very aromatic bouquet. We can notice notes of white flowers, such as acacia and rose petals, along with a discreet vanilla aroma. It is a very round in mouth, with a hint of acidity that allows it to keep its minerality.

Grapes: 100% Chardonnay
