To learn about the Burgundy wine region in France can seem overwhelming because there are literally hundreds of villages and vineyard names that give their names to the wines. But if you remember that there are only two grapes, Chardonnay for white and Pinot Noir for red, then you have an idea of what to expect from every wine, yay! In this wine tasting video from Burgundy (with love:)), we taste two Roux Pere et Fils (the winery name) reds from villages worth seeking out for a great intro to the world’s benchmark Pinot Noir region.
