The appellation Bourgogne Chitry is restricted to white, red and rosé wines grown within the defined area of the commune of Chitry.
The white (Chardonnay) Bourgogne Chitry has a rich golden colour, sometimes with greenish highlights. Its bouquet brings together flowers (hawthorn, honeysuckle) with fruit (limes, grapefruit) and, quite often, a touch of gunflint. The mouth is balanced and harmonious, and has sufficient acidity to permit several years' aging.
The markedly ruby-hued reds (Pinot Noir) develop aromas of cherry, raspberry, and gooseberry. On the palate, tannins yield to a smooth, plainly-built but charming fruit.
