Bourgogne Grand Ordinaire is a wine appellation in the Burgundy region of France. Red, white and rose wines are permitted under this appellation. A greater variety of grape types can be used in the department of Yonne where Melon de Bourgogne and Le Cesar are permitted white and red varieties respectively.
The following grapes are permitted for white wines, Aligote, Chardonnay, Melon de Bourgogne and Pinot Blanc. Pinot Gris is a supplementary white grape variety but it cannot exceed 10% of the plantings.
Red grape varieties are Gamay and Pinot Noir which can be supplemented by small quantities of Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Ceasar (in Yonne only).
There are two exceptions/additions to the grape varieties. For vineyards that currently have plantings of Tressot and/or Sacy these can continue to be used in the Yonne department, but new plantings cannot be made.
