There’s Hope For Me Yet!

The first foreigner to purchase vines within Montrachet Grand Cru: http://www.decanter.com/news/wine-news/518870/gambal-becomes-first-foreigner-to-own-montrachet-grand-cru

Which makes me think, perhaps we should talk about Burgundy wines at some point. I’ve written a bit already about Bordeaux, but Burgundy has been left relatively untouched. It’s an incredibly confusing region; probably the most confusing in the world. I have yet to become comfortable with it, and probably never will be!

For today though, here’s an each lesson. White burgundy = chardonnay. Red burgundy = pinot noir. Always. It’s not a law, but that’s all they do there. If you ever see Montrachet, read: chardonnay. Really good chardonnay.
