Here is the first region guide, to Burgundy. It begins like this:
Some of the most unique wines in the world – reds and white – come from Burgundy. A well made red Bourgogne (or Burgundy wine if you prefer), made from the elusive pinot noir grape variety, is a wine of elegance, hardly found anywhere else. The fruity aromas are mixed with a hint of autumn leaves and spices and almost always a moderate use of oak barrels. Despite the pale colour these can be very impressive wines.
