Wine Review Report:

Last reviewed: 13 February, 2020
Regional appellation for exclusively red and rosé wines in French Burgundy. The vineyards cover some 430 hectares of vines on calcareous soils in the departments of Côte d'Or (91 communes), Rhône (85), Sâone-et-Loire (154) and Yonne (54).

The department of the Rhône in the south (not to be confused with the Rhône wine-growing region), the home of the Beaujolais, has great independence. Administratively, it belongs to the Rhône-Alpes...

At this time, the land that was only later called Gaul by the Romans was inhabited by the Celts. A lively trade developed and the Greeks covered the demand. When the Greeks migrated to the Po Valley in the 5th century, they got to know Italian wine and began to import it. The later French had been consuming wine for a long time before they began to cultivate it themselves on a large scale. The...
