Bourgogne Blanc
Bourgogne Blanc is the most basic designation used for white wines from the Burgundy region and those not entitled to use one of the more glamorous sub-region names. As much as 50% of Burgundy's volume goes to Bourgogne AOCs. The whites are typically Chardonnay, though Pinot Blanc and Aligote can also be used and this fact will not necessarily appear on the back label (varietals are not allowed on the front).

In the broadest terms, Bourgogne Blanc tends to be crisp, refreshing, and unoaked. The wines can offer reasonable value as an introduction to the region, but as always with Burgundy, the quality of the producer will mean more than the quality of the appellation and there is a very wide degree of variability.
