Cesar is a grape found in the area north west of Dijon in France in the district of Yonne that is used for blending with Pinot Noir to make Bourgogne red wines. It is the only part of Burgundy in which this grape is permitted.
Also known as Cesar Noir and Romain, the latter term used because it is thought to have been introduced to the area by Roman soldiers. We particularly enjoy the Domaine de la Cadette Bourgogne l'Ermitage Rouge made by Jean Montanet which always includes around 20% of Cesar.
