France:  The Burgundy Region

Burgundy is located in the central part of eastern France. The Burgundy region is the home of some of the finest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines in the world.  At the southern end of the region is the area of  Beaujolais which is known for its Gamay based wines.  The Chablis area is a sub region of  Burgundy that makes wonderful Chardonnay based wines from a poor chalky soil.  The wines from the vineyard 'Le Montrachet' and from the adjoining vineyards of Chassagne Montrachet and Puligny Montrachet are prized around the world for their fine quality.  
Fixin is a commune known for its red wines.
