One single limestone escarpment in the middle of France produces the most highly regarded dry white wines in the world as well as many of the most sought-after reds too. This ‘Golden Slope’ – the Côte d’Or – is planted almost exclusively with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and its map resonates with world famous names such as Gevrey-Chambertin, Vosne-Romanée, Nuits-St-Georges, Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet.
Chablis in the north and the Mâconnais in the south, are renowned for flinty and sun-filled Chardonnays respectively. Pouilly-Fuissé and Saint-Véran are favoured hilly parts of the large Mâcon area.
Burgundies, both red and white, are great choices for dinner parties and, when correctly aged, can prove the most memorable bottles ever.
