For the lover of statistics and/or the lover of Burgundy wines, we have found a handy and updated summary of all relevant figures concerning the wines of Burgundy, from Chablis to Mâconnais (Beaujolais not included).
Burgundy has 84 appellations, which is 23% of all France’s wine appellations. Grapes are grown on almost 30,000 hectares. 50% is Chardonnay, 41% is Pinot Noir, 6% Aligoté and 3% Gamay, Sauvignon Blanc and some others.
Half of the production is exported. The United States takes 20% and is thus the largest market outside of France, after the UK, Japan, Belgium and Canada. Export revenues are disproportionately large for such a small region. Burgundy accounts for 20% of France’s total export revenue for still wines. But has only 8.6% of the production. But then many Burgundy wines cost quite a bit of money.
