Discover our generic appellation wines
Outside of the famous and controlled appellations like Meursault or Vosne-Romanée, you will find what we call generic appellations, also known as local or regional appellations. They're used for more "basic" wines (this is, of course, not a quality judgement), often opposed to a "cru" wine, and often sold under the name of the region of origin itself.
In burgundy, just like in any other wine region, you'll find many of them. For example: Bourgogne (Blanc or Rouge), Bourgogne Aligoté... From the Saône-et-Loire to the Yonne, from the Côte-d'Or (the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune) to the Rhône Valley, there are 3,000 hectares of French vineyards where wine is produced, red and white alike.
