BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW
Burgundy is one of the most famous vinos in the world, but what makes it so? It's a combination of history, quality and quantity, the last of which might be the most important, because, to have the right to the regional name of Burgundy or any of its districts or villages, white vinos can only be produced using Chardonnay grapes, and red vinos using Pinot Noir grapes. This restriction has forced producers to focus on quality rather than quantity, and that is one of the main reasons Burgundy vinos are so well-liked.
Although production of Burgundy was started well before the Romans invaded Gaulle, the vino acquired fame during the reign of Charlemagne, and acquired further notoriety when grape variety restrictions were implemented as law in 1335 by Duke Philip the Bold. The production areas as well as quotas have remained basically the same since. The appellation d'Origine Controlee imposed by Napoleon only reaffirmed these limitations and Burgundy has seen great success in the last 75 years, with some bottles fetching big prices.
The Ruth's Chris Dubai steakhouse has a variety of Burgundy vinos at good prices, and their sommelier will be pleased to take guests on a vinous tour of Burgundy, and tell you which white or red is best suited to accompany your delicious food.
