The wine region of Crémant de Bourgogne
Recognized in 1975, the appellation crémant-de-bourgogne replaced the Sparkling wines whose quality was not very homogeneous. Its geographical area, very vast, covers more than 300 communes, of Châtillonnais, with the borders of Champagne auboise, with Beaujolais included. The AOC imposes conditions of harvest and elaboration as strict as those of the Champagne region and copied on this one, the difference residing in the duration of Maturation on lees, which is of nine months minimum, against twelve for the champagne. The Grape varieties used also bring Crémant-de-Bourgogne closer to its illustrious Champagne model, for although all the varieties of the region can be used, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are favoured.
The wine region of Burgundy
Bourgogne is the catch-all regional appellation title of 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 over 700 appellation titles for its wines. Thus, Burgundy wines often come from one Vineyard (or several separate vineyards) without an appellation title specific to the region, Village or even vineyard. A standard Burgundy wine may be made from grapes grown in one or more of Burgundy's 300 communes.
