Bourgogne (Burgundy) is the broadest level of appellation in the Burgundy region of France. The appellation was first established in July 1937 for the production of red and white wines as well as rose wines.
Red wines can be produced from Pinot Noir supplemented with the white grapes Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris. In the department of Yonne some Cesar Noir can also be used provided the total percentage does not exceed 10%.
White wines can be made from Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc supplemented by less than 10% Pinot Gris.
