The Ideal Glass

A Tulip Shaped glass is the best choice for a dry white wine.

It guides the wine to the center of your mouth, avoiding the sides, where acidity is less pleasant.

A smaller bowl also helps to serve smaller quantities, and keep the wine cold.

Remember to hold the glass by the stem!

Bourgogne (Burgundy)

Bourgogne has 5 wine-producing regions: Chablis Grand Auxerrois, Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune, Côte Chalonnaise, Mâconnais and Châtillonnais.

Burgundy

Primary Grapes:

60% Pinot Noir
35% Chardonnay

The vineyards of Bourgogne stretch over 230 km from North to South.

The presence of two great rivers: Yonne in the North and Saône in the East and a temperate semi-continental climate, make it the perfect place to cultivate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
