Wines: Bourgogne AOC

Bourgogne is both the French name for the region of Burgundy and of the most basic and generic appellation within it. The region's white wines at this level include: Bourgogne Blanc, which is primarily Chardonnay but with the permitted addition of Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc in small amounts; and Bourgogne Aligoté, containing just Aligoté. For reds, there is: Bourgogne Rouge; mainly Pinot Noir, although Gamay can be used if made in Beaujolais; Bourgogne Passetoutgrains, which is predominantly Pinot Noir, must be a third Gamay. Bourgogne Rosé is also made but in very small quantities. Because Bourgogne can encompass such wide range of wines it is best to look for an additional suffix or description, such as the village or producer for hints about the wines provenance and quality.
