The Ins and Outs of Burgundy Wines

There are plenty of good wines on offer these days, but there are a very few that could stand as tall as the Burgundy wine. A lot of people, especially the connoisseurs of fine wines would be aware of the fact that this range of wines comes from the Burgundy area of France. Due to the soil and weather conditions in the area, there are some fantastic wines to be sampled here. There are mainly two types of grapes in this region, and they are better known as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. While the former generally creates a better red wine, the latter is known to give birth to some fantastic whites.

There is a general misconception that Burgundy wine is only red, but the fact of the matter is that there are plenty of wonderful whites that come from this area too. For instance, the Sauvignon Blanc, which generally comes from this area, is a beautiful white wine. There are true wine connoisseurs and critics like Robert Parker who will vouch for the quality of the wines from Burgundy. Such experts will also be able to provide sane advice on how to pair wines with food, how to pick out a reasonably priced bottle and also how to tell a good wine from a mediocre one.
