FGJ Back Vintage Burgundy Sale: 1967 – 2015

For 24 hours, we show our LOVE for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay

Alongside our Bordeaux sale, we offer in parallel a similar sale format featuring wines from Burgundy. For musings, we discuss the two wine regions that are the most famous in all France

Burgundy is simplicity and diversity intertwined. There are just two primary grape varieties used in Burgundy; Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

It would be fair to say that Burgundy is everything that Bordeaux is not. Bordeaux produces about 69 million cases of wine, Burgundy produces just 0.5 million cases which is about 3% of the country’s wine production. Bordeaux’s wines exhibit the mastery of blending 5 different grapes, Burgundy winemakers produce pure expressions of 2 grapes without the blending.

Here are more fun facts about Burgundy:

  1. Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are not the only 2 grapes in Burgundy, there are plantings of Aligote, Gamay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris!
  2. Besides Red and White, it also makes a wonderful sparkling called Cremant de Bourgogne!
  3. Burgundy vines grow on terroir that was once an ancient seabed that forms the Kimmeridgian soils based on hard, calcium-rich shells which vintners believe impart the unique flavour profile in Burgundian wines.
  4. Starting 2014, Burgundy has overtaken Bordeaux as the leading region in terms of sales at the world’s leading wine auction houses.
