Inside Burgundy’s History, Including A ‘Royal War’ With Champagne

The first moment I got interested in wine I was warned about Burgundy. It was made abundantly clear that we (by which I mean a bunch of friends with far more experience in wine than I had) drank Bordeaux. In those days, not that long ago, it was always Bordeaux Firsts or the occasional Second Growth – as long as it was one of the top names and vintages. Château Palmer might get a run if someone wanted to slum it and go Third Growth, and if we really wanted to walk on the wild side we might let our hair down with a St. Émilion or Pomerol, but it better be a really good one or eternal humiliation was the inevitable fate. This was simply how it was. The way of the world. And wine was so much cheaper.
