Burgundy means Pinot. The area is sometimes described as a "minefield", but the rule

seems to apply "follow the grower". And Burgundy is all about terroir, from village to

village, from vineyard to vineyard, from one row of vines to another. And of course,

vintage matters also. In Auxerre the wines tend to be lighter and fresher, emphasizing

the fruit. Moving into the Cotes de Nuits, young village wines tend to show delicious

primary Pinot aromas and fruit (violets, red cherries, raspberries), whereas the 1er

cru wines are meatier and express darker fruit flavours allied to other notes of wood

and mineral. As all the wines age (and some do more quickly than others) they begin

to unfurl other aromatic flavours - hints of forest here, notes of truffle there.
