Burgundy is a region revered by wine experts as home to arguably the world’s greatest wines, as well as two of the world’s greatest grapes: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Burgundy includes some of the wine world’s most famous names, including Macon, Chablis, Beaujolais, Pouilly-Fuisse, and the constellation of appellations that fall under the famous “Cote d’Or” (or Golden Slope) -the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune. But Burgundy’s excellence comes at a price; Burgundian wines are expensive- the best ultra-expensive- partly because Burgundy production is quite limited and demand for these wines is quite the opposite. The region is also one of the most confusing in the world of fine wine, with a panoply of place names, producers, appellations, sub-appellations, vineyards and labelling requirements that bewilder even experienced consumers.
