Bourgogne Rouge

Burgundy, France

Bourgogne Rouge is a large AOC of around 2,000ha which encompasses the ‘regional’ quality level of dry red wines of 300-odd communes of Burgundy. Bourgogne Rouge wines may be produced from grapes grown in any one (or more) of these communes, which extend from Chablis in the north to Beaujolais in the south.

While Pinot Noir accounts for the vast majority of Bourgogne Rouge wines, a small number of other grapes are permitted in limited proportions: Gamay (found in Beaujolais), the red César (found in Chablis), plus Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris (these white varieties are only permitted if grown in the same vineyard as the red varieties, and only if accounting for less than 15% of plantings.
