Most people know that countries like Italy and France are famous for their wines. As you increase your knowledge about wines you begin to know about the different regions within those countries.

All that Burgundy you should know.

France has many wine regions such as Bordeaux and Champagne, but few are as famous as Burgundy, or Bourgogne in French. This region is well known for the delicious wines that have been emanating from this blessed

fertile earth since the time of the monks and monasteries. Throughout many centuries, the region has been producing some of the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Burgundy wines – some of the most coveted wine in the world

The quality of Burgundy wines comes from what the monks identified as terroir, the combination of soil, climate, altitude, rainfall and drainage. Each of these affect the quality of the grape. In Burgundy, the terroir is ideal for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Burgundy wines can exhibit medium-full body, scents of raspberries, blackberries, and cherry. The Pinot Noir grapes offer complex flavor, while the Chardonnay reflects refreshing fruit and other more complex buttery and vanilla notes.

Burgundy glass for Burgundy wine

Wine experts and other related professionals say that although you master uncorking a wine bottle or perfectly pouring a glass if you use the wrong glassware, you may miss a wine’s potential. Hence, the creation of glassware developed to bring out the unique characteristics and taste of each wine and improve the overall drinking experience.

A Burgundy wine glass for Pinot Noir has a rounder bowl and is a bit shorter in height compared to other wine glasses. The large bowl allows the full aroma to emerge but the narrower rim of the wine glass keeps the aroma inside the bowl to revel the drinker. The unique shape of a Burgundy wine glass allows the wine to come into contact with the tip of the tongue thereby revealing its delicate flavors.
