Bourgogne Blanc & Rouge: Gateway to Greatness

Retail Team | September 26, 2023

Know your producers and fine wines will follow. There is perhaps no better example of this notion than in Burgundy, where Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are often elevated from a humble grape variety to a vehicle for some of the world’s greatest terroirs.

What better way to familiarize yourself with a house style than to begin with a Bourgogne Blanc or Rouge? Our Sotheby’s Wine Gateway selections offer introductions to an array of talented and consistent producers whom we have long admired. From the intense, mineral opulence of Leflaive, to the graceful, perfumed heights of Denis Bachelet, these regional wines are joys in their own right.

Begin with a Bourgogne and watch the Villages, Premiers and Grands Crus become all the more enjoyable in context. Both your wallet and your palate will thank you for stocking up this fall!
