White Burgundy, with a few exceptions, is 100% Chardonnay. They have been growing Chardonnay in Burgundy since the 12th century, about 1000 years. No wonder, then, that White Burgundies are considered to be some of the finest Chardonnays in the world.
The most famous of the White Burgundies come from the Grand Cru vineyards of Montrachet, (Le Montrachet, Batard Montrachet, Bienvenue Batard Montrachet, Crios Batard Montrachet and Chevalier Montrachet) and the village and premier cru vineyards of Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet, and Meursault, all in the Cote de Beaune.
White Burgundy production encompasses more than just that small area. The great Chardonnay wines of Burgundy begin in Chablis to the far north, and spread through the Cote d'Or, the Cote Chalonnaise, and the Macon in the south.
