EXCEPTIONAL TERROIRS


An exceptional territory both for its different climates and its geology, Burgundy has vineyards with an unrivaled world reputation.

 

 

THE VINEYARD

 

It covers four departments: Yonne, Côte d'Or, Saône-et-Loire and Rhône.

 

The first produces the famous Chablis, Irancy, Côte Saint-Jacques or Coulange la Vineuse and crémants.

 

The other three are rich with the vineyards of the Côte de Nuit, Côte de Beaune, Hautes Côtes de Nuits and Hautes Côtes de Beaune. It is the latter who produces Caprice and “S” By Sébastien Laffitte Sommelier, the two exceptional Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Burgundy from the Collection Absolue acclaimed by many wine sommeliers and journalists.

 

The vineyards of the Côte Chalonnaise, Couchois and Mâconnais in the department of Saône-et- Loire from which the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Collection Essential come.


Little information, when we talk about "Climate" in Burgundy it means, when used with the name of an appellation, a locality or a cadastral plot characterized by a type of soil and a defined microclimate.


The Beaujolais and Coteaux du Lyonnais vineyards are administratively attached to the Rhône department: appellations such as Brouilly, Côte de Brouilly, Chénas, Chiroubles, Juliénas, Fleurie, Moulin à Vent, Morgon, Régnié and Saint-Amour.

 

 

CONTRAST LANDSCAPES

 

Burgundy vineyards are established mainly on Jurassic clay-limestone soils up to Macon. South of the city, in Beaujolais, the granite foothills of the Massif Central take over.


The landscapes are quite varied with their hills, their coasts, their valleys, the foothills of the mountains ...

 

THE GRAPES

 

The Burgundy vineyards produce red, white and rosé wines as well as sparkling wines. The main grape varieties are Chardonnay for white wines, Pinot Noir for red wines.


Aligoté comes from a cross between Gouais Blanc and Pinot Noir.


Pinot Noir gives distinguished wines often little colored with typical aromas of morello cherry, blackberry, redcurrant, strawberry, raspberry and peony. Sometimes spicy when it is young, it will evolve on notes of leather, undergrowth and mushroom. Slightly tannic, it is easily drunk even for the most sensitive palates.

 

Chardonnay give ample and elegant wines with fine and fruity aromas. In Burgundy these wines most often age in oak barrels. Their aromas vary according to the terroir: honey and butter in Côte d'Or, flint and white fruit (pear, peach, lychee) in Chablis.


Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Collection Essentielle come from the Côte Chalonnaise, Couchois and Mâconnais in the department of Saône-et-Loire.

In Beaujolais the wines come from the Gamay grape variety.

 

Blanc de blanc champagnes develop aromas of toast, brioche, hazelnut and citrus.
