Blessed with a rich heritage, Burgundy produces 200 million bottles a year of a great variety of beautifully distinctive wines. There are red wines for laying down that pair wonderfully with poultry, while the superior "grand cru" vintages go well with game. The whites are well rounded and even in flavour: the Chardonnay is admired worldwide, and the drier Chablis should be laid down for 4 or 5 years to reveal its full glory. Burgundy's winegrowers have used their know-how and tradition to bring the best out of their complex and variable environment. They are true artists.
