Burgundy

Burgundy

In this area, red wines are produced from one variety - Pinot Noir, but the wines actually vary in quality from light and ordinary to rich, complex and truly majestic. Burgundy is famous for its small vineyards and it is generally believed that the smaller the area of ​​the vineyard, the better the wine. The best Burgundy wines come from Côte d'Or, a strip of only 30 miles, divided in the center into 2 separate parts; Côte de Nuit to the north and Côte de Beaune to the south. The fame of Cotê de Nuits is in the red wines - 95% of Pinot Noir grapes are produced here. Of course, here are some of the best, able to age, the most exotic and expensive wines. The Côte de Beaune produces approximately 38% white wine, 60% red wine and 2% sparkling wine. The white wine variety is exclusively Chardonnay, and the quality varies from the best, Montrachets and Corton Charlemagnes, Meursault, Puligny and Chassagne to the more ordinary Macon Blanc. The former are traditionally aged in small oak barrels, while Macon wines are usually lighter in character and have a good value for money. The red wines from Beaune do not have the fame of their "brothers" from Côte de Nuit, with exceptions here are those who come from Pomard, Corton and Volney. In general, they are lighter in style, but depending on the harvest they can show potential that successfully competes with the Côte de Nuits and beyond.

Gamay Noir

Gamay Noir

Gamay (Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc in its entirety) is a red grape variety best known for the production of light, young and fruity red wines from Beaujolais, where it probably came from Germany in the 14th century, after Burgundy's inhospitable attitude towards it. . Gamay is characterized by the aromas of red cherries and strawberries, and when the method of carbon maceration is used in the vinification, nuances of bakeed cakes and banana come to the fore. This technique is most often used for the production of Beaujolais Nouveau - a young wine, presented worldwide at the same time always on the third Thursday in November. This light, translucent wine was generally intended for vineyard workers, but in the 1970s and 1980s it caught the attention of marketers and wine merchants, who quickly made it a worldwide sensation. The question remains whether this does not contribute to the region's diminished reputation rather than to its promotion. Abstracting from Beaujolais Nouveau, Gamay is actually able to produce deep and complex wines with the potential to mature. This is the reason for the return he has been enjoying lately. Beaujolais appeallation has 10 villages (cru), the most famous of which are Moulin-à-Vent, Fleurie and Morgon. Wines are traditionally vinified, often aged in oak barrels and the best specimens have the potential to age up to 10 years. Gamay is also found in the Loire Valley, where it is mainly used to make rosè wines under the names of Anjou and Saumur, but is sometimes blended with Pinot Noir.
