Producer Info

Brothers Pascal and Laurent Borgeot are the fourth generation of vignerons here and run their estate opposite the village of Santenay. They own 20 hectares of vines across four communes and are very respectful of their land, ploughing to remove weeds as opposed to spraying and using only organic fertilisers. All the wines are aged in oak, around 25% new and have an immediate charm.

Regional Info

Bourgogne is the regional, catch-all appellation title for the Burgundy wine region in eastern France (“Bourgogne” is the French name for Burgundy).

Burgundy has a complex and comprehensive appellation system; counting Premier Cru and Grand Cru titles, the region has more than than 700 appellation titles for its wines. Thus Bourgogne wines often come from a vineyard (or, several distinct vineyards) without their own district-specific, village-specific or even vineyard- specific appellation title. A standard Bourgogne wine can be made from grapes grown in any one – or more – of 300 communes across Burgundy.

Each Bourgogne appellation may be followed by the colour of the wine (blanc, rouge or rosé) as appropriate, and where it is not already implied by the appellation itself. Bourgogne Rouge is produced almost exclusively from Pinot Noir and is distinct from Bourgogne Blanc, which is made from white grapes (mostly Chardonnay).
