Burgundy

romanee-conti.jpg

Burgundy is home to the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, and, for purists, the greatest wines those varieties can produce. This status is largely due to the work of monks from the Benedictine and Cistercian orders, who during the Middle Ages acquired large amounts of vineyard land and began to compare the wines produced from different areas and plots. Thus was born the dizzyingly complex Burgundian system of wine classification, with its hundreds of named vineyards (or climats) and hierarchy of vineyard quality. The Grand Cru vineyards stand at the apex, then come the Premiere Cru, the Villages, and finally the regional Bourgogne. We here at Marquis Wine Cellars love our Burgundy, and we are please to offer you wines from several top producers available nowhere else in B.C.
