The regional appellation in the Burgundy
replaced the appellation Bourgogne Grand Ordinaire (Bourgogne Ordinaire) from the 2012 vintage. It covers 275 hectares of vineyards in defined areas of the Burgundian departments of Côte d'Or (91 municipalities), Saône-et-Loire (154) and Yonne (54), as well as in the Rhône (85). Due to the size of the area, there are a large number of types of soil with calcareous subsoil around Joigny (Yonne) in the north and granite and marl in the south. The appellation applies to red and rosé wines (250 ha) and white wines (25 ha). The red and rosé wines are made Pinot Noir
and only in Yonne too...
