#DidYouKnow In Bourgogne, Appellations d’Origine Contrôlée (AOCs) certification guarantees the characteristics of a wine in terms of their individual terroir, the way grapes are grown and the wine is made. Divided into 4 levels of appellation: Régionales, Villages, Village Premier Crus and Grands Crus, AOC assures authenticity that winemaking follows precise steps according to local savoir-faire, borne from traditional methods that have been improved over time, and rigorously checked at every stage of production.
The region’s most famous wines are reds made from Pinot Noir grapes and whites made from Chardonnay, while other grape varieties produced in Bourgogne include Gamay (red) and Aligoté (white). A small amount of sparkling wines are also produced in the region (10%), and they represent the region’s fastest growing wine category.
Il #merlot è un vitigno a bacca nera originario della Francia risalente addirittura al 1700. In #Italia ha trovato condizioni ambientali ideali in #Friuli#Veneto e #Trentino ma è diffuso in molte altre regioni.
È ideale con i salumi, la #pasta condita da sughi saporiti, carni bianche e rosse.
