Burgundy white wine is distinguished by its elegance and pleasant aroma. Chardonnay and Aligote are predominantly used in the region. The most famous varietals come from the Con de Beaune appellation. They have an attractive subtle flavor, soft structure, and excellent balance. They are also notable for their good aging potential. The wines began to be made during the Middle Ages. Since then and until today, the region has been picking the berries by hand, selecting them with care. Whole clusters are not pressed, but first the berries are separated. After the juice is pressed, it is left to ferment and then left to stand in various containers. The peculiarity of Burgundy wines is that they are not filtered. This makes them particularly full-bodied.
