Bourgogne Vezelay is a white wine appellation in the Burgundy region of France near the town of Avallon and covering the communes of Asquins, Saint-Père, Tharoiseau and Vézelay in the department of Yonne.
The word Vezelay can be used if the wine is white and if it has been produced in one of the four nominated communes, however, the font size of the word 'Vezelay' must be the same as for the word 'Bourgogne' and must immediately follow the word 'Bourgogne'.
It is a small appellation covering only 64 hectares and only about 2500 hectolitres of wine being produced.
White wines can be produced from either the Chardonnay or Melon de Bourgogne grape varieties or a blend of the two.
