If you are eager to taste and compare Bordeaux and Burgundy, a great idea would be to gather a group of friends and have a wine tasting at one of the Wine shop HK. The beauty of wine is that it is all different. Each has its own colour, flavour profile, body, nose, notes, tannin levels and finish. The main difference between the two is that they are, before anything else, two separate regions in France. The regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy wine in France are world renowned for producing some of the best wines available anywhere.

This is Burgundy country: rolling hills, lush valleys and vineyards as far as the eye can see. You can stop at many of the little "caves" along the route to sample the fine Burgundy wine. In France, wine cellars are called "caves" so where you see a sign for Caves, you will find wine tasting and wines for sale.

This is the Bordeaux country: this world famous region in France near the Southeast coast makes some of the best and most famous red wines as well as white wines and dessert wines. Of these, the most notable of the red wines come from Medoc, Saint-Emilion, and Pomerol. Most of the high quality white wines hail from the area called Graves.

The Bordeaux region of France is the world's wine industry capital. It's generally considered an oceanic climate but with warmer summers, milder winters and more rain than most areas that are considered oceanic. The desirable climate, along with the high limestone content of the soil, makes for the ideal place to plant the region's vines. Largely known for its grand reds, featuring various berry, cherry and floral notes blended with Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot grapes, it also produces white Bordeaux. Bordeaux produces everything from everyday table wines that are extremely affordable up to some of the most expensive red and Bordeaux wine in the world.

The Burgundy region of France is a couple hundred miles northeast of Bordeaux and has a cooler, more continental climate with much more soil variation which allows for the production of excellent wine--both red and white. Like Bordeaux, Burgundy wine region is one of the most renowned wine-growing regions in the world. There are several sub-regions of Burgundy, all with their particular nuances, so it's hard to generalize about the wine of Burgundy as a whole.

A big difference between Burgundy wine and Bordeaux wine is that Bordeaux uses grape blends, and Burgundy uses predominantly varietals (single grape type). In fact, 90% of the wine produced in Burgundy is from just one grape--Pinot Noir (red). The white wines of Burgundy use the Chardonnay grape exclusively. The region of Beaujolais falls within Burgundy, producing the Gamay grape. The wine of this sub-region is not held in the same regard as the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay; however, the Beaujolais Crus offer some very nice red wines, and each November the Beaujolais region produces a lighter, fruitier wine called Beaujolais Nouveau, which is quite popular.
