Burgundy Day IV: Montrachet vineyard and Cote Chalonnaise, oh my!
March 22, 20121
Note: Wines In Niagara is compiling a daily photo blog from Burgundy during the Grands Jours de Bourgogne, an annual celebration of the wines from the entire region.
While the first day of the week celebrated the white wines of Chablis, and Day 2 took us to the Cote de Nuits for a close look at the reds (pinot noirs) of Burgundy, and the third day was reserved for a look at the newest and most northern appellation in Burgundy, Marsannay, day four included a grand dinner at the Chateau de Meursault, a visit to the Grand Cru Montrachet vineyard and a vast tasting of wines from the Cote Chalonnaise.
The wines from this region are the more affordable Burgundies from some very diverse terroirs, making sparkling wines, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
