The Essential List | Red Burgundy

Pinot Noir's spiritual home is in Burgundy, in the great villages of the Côte d’Or. The Côte de Beaune is about vibrancy and red cherry fruit flavours.  In the north, as one heads up through the Côte de Nuits through villages like Chambolle Musigny and Gevrey Chambertin, the wines have denser wild fruit characters, building in concentration and structure. The southerly vineyards of Mercurey in the Côte Chalonnaise produce brilliant value and beautifully accessible wines. Honourable mention must also go to Burgundy’s other red grape: the crunchy, juicy Gamay of Beaujolais.
