Burgundy:
An Honorable Competitor


There has long been a friendly rivalry between France’s two premier wine producing regions, Burgundy and Bordeaux. The contrast of culture among these two leaders – Bordeaux being seen as the rich man’s playground, with Burgundy representing a more rustic, earthy and sensual approach to wine – remains to this day. Still, both offer the wine lover some of the highest quality and most expensive wines in the marketplace – with Burgundy’s list including those of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Domaine Leroy, Henri Jayer, Emmanuel Rouget, Domaine Dugat-Py, Domaine Leflaive and Domaine Armand Rousseau – and share qualities that almost always generate comparisons between them.

Burgundy’s history in viniculture is long and proud. From as early as the 3rd century B.C., wine was being produced by Roman winemakers in the region, or at least a facsimile thereof. Early vin de bourgogne, or Burgundy wine, was dense and concentrated, sweetened with herbs and honey, and almost always diluted with water in order to render it palatable. When the Roman Empire fell, the fate of the vineyards was left to abbeys and monasteries in the region, with the monks taking their cue from their Roman predecessors. The most active order, the Cisterians, imposed new traditions on the process which reflected their equally strong commitment to their faith: they abolished the practice of diluting wine with water, citing that wine held deep religious symbolism associated with the life of Christ.
