Discover Great Burgundy Wines from Famous Producers
Burgundy is in some ways the most terroir-oriented region in France; immense attention is paid to the area of origin, and in which of the region's 400 types of soil a wine's grapes are grown. As opposed to Bordeaux, where classifications are producer-driven and awarded to individual chateaux, Burgundy classifications are geographically-focused. A specific vineyard or region will bear a given classification, regardless of the wine's producer. This focus is reflected on the wine's labels, where appellations are most prominent and producers' names often appear at the bottom in much smaller text.
However no matter how small text it is, a producer’s name can still make a big difference. Established producers whose families have been working on the same land for the past several generations surely understand more of the terroir and the vines than the others, we can assume. And like in any field, big players are always THE EXPERTS as well as THE VISIONARIES.
