The Bourgogne Tonnerre vineyard is located in the valley of the river Armançon. Wine-growing in this area developed from the 9th Century, until the phylloxera crisis of 1870 which led to a drop of the production. It is only in 1987 that wine growers decided to bring it back to life, building on century of know-how and tradition. Here as well, like the Bourgogne Epineuil, the work of the wine growers has been successfully acknowledged: the appellation Bourgogne Tonnerre has been granted since 2006. The area produces only white wines, issued from Chardonnay grapes. These wines are dry and fruity, with a beautiful golden colour. These mineral wines have flowers and citrus aromas. They are recommended with snails, fish, poultry in creamy sauce and cheese like Chabichou and Gruyère.
