2 jigger Burgundy

Ingredient: Burgundy

What it is:  Wine
Typically red wine made in the Burgundy region in eastern France, which are made from Pinot Noir grapes. Also white wines made from Chardonnay grapes. Red and white wines are also made from other grape varieties, such as Gamay and Aligoté respectively. Small amounts of rosé and sparkling wine are also produced in the region. Chardonnay-dominated Chablis and Gamay-dominated Beaujolais are formally part of Burgundy wine region, but wines from those subregions are usually referred to by their own names rather than as "Burgundy wines".
