The Bourgogne winegrowing region produces great wines with historical and international renown.
Although the most famous may be the Premiers and Grands Crus, there are also many wonderful appellations Régionales and Village for you to discover.
With 84 appellations to explore, your adventure has only just begun!

For many years, the Bourgogne winegrowing region has claimed to have around 100 AOCs. However, there are in fact 84 AOCs. The rest made up by the Dénominations Géographiques Complémentaires (DGCs) within the Bourgogne AOC.  

Wine Characteristics

The colour of the Blagny reds is a ruby/crimson deepening towards a purplish black-cherry hue that is reminiscent of twilight. The fruity nose exhibits the typically Burgundian scent spectrum of small red fruits (strawberry, gooseberry) or black fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry). With age, leather, pepper, cocoa, liquorice and musky scents evolve. Well and solidly built, this broad-shouldered wine needs some cellar time for its chewiness to melt a little. It has just the right amount of flesh to give it a good, lithe, and attractive body. Blagny is an island of red wine in a sea of whites.

Wine Steward’s Tip

Red: Blagny impresses with its balanced, four-sided structure. Its natural team-mates, therefore, are firm-fleshed roasts (beef or pork) with a touch of sweetness as well as poultry-based stews and superior offal. Its concentration of aromas makes it an ideal companion to spicy exotic dishes such as a good meat couscous or a chili con carne. It is also well-suited to strong cheeses such as Époisses, Ami du Chambertin, or farmhouse Munster.
Serving temperature: 14 to 16°C.


Nestled between the vineyards of Puligny-Montrachet and those of Meursault, the hamlet of Blagny enjoys one of the finest views of the Côte de Beaune. It grows red wines which carry the appellation BLAGNY or BLAGNY PREMIER
CRU, with or without the name of the specific Climat, but its white wines belong to the PULIGNY-MONTRACHET or MEURSAULT appellations. These vineyards were being exploited as early as the 12th century by Cistercian monks from Maizières known as the « Montrachet fathers ». The official grant of AOC status dates from 1937.
The words Côte de Beaune may be added to the name of the Blagny appellation.


At altitudes of 340 to 400 metres, this hillsope lies on marls overlain by limestone scree. Lower down are clay-limestone soils. There are observable differences between some of the Premiers Crus vineyards:
Hameau de Blagny, for example, has rich, deep and pebbly soil while La Garenne is rockier and more south-facing.
