Grape Variety
Bourgogne Blanc is a title covering still white wines produced under the regional Bourgogne appellation, in the Burgundy region of central eastern France. Created in 1937, the broad Bourgogne title covers those Burgundy wines produced in areas not covered by more location-specific appellations.

Bourgogne Blanc wine can be made from grapes grown in any one (or more) of 300 communes from the Yonne (and the vineyards around Chablis) in the north to the southern Mâconnais.

Grape varieties
The grape varieties permitted for use under the Bourgogne Blanc title are divided into two groups: the main varieties and a so-called "accessory variety". The former are Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc with Pinot Gris as the (latter) "accessory".

There are few stipulations as to the proportions of the main varieties – a Bourgogne Blanc could be a blend of either in vary proportions – although Pinot Gris cannot make up more than 30 percent of any vineyard and similarly cannot comprise more than 30 percent of any blend. Chardonnay, generally, dominates white plantings across the region.

Either one of the principal varieties (where this is the major portion of any wine) can appear next to the word "Bourgogne" on the label, however. As such, Bourgogne Chardonnay and (rarer still) Bourgogne Pinot Blanc wines can sometimes be encountered.
