Burgundy (“Bourgogne”) may be small in size but its influence is huge in the world of wine. The region is in Eastern France in the valleys and slopes west of the Saône, a tributary of the Rhône. The most famous wines produced here are dry red wines made from Pinot noir grapes and white wines made from Chardonnay grapes. Red and white wines are also made from other grape varieties, such as Gamay and Aligoté, respectively. Rosé and sparkling wines are also produced in the region in small amounts. Chardonnay-dominated Chablis and Gamay-dominated Beaujolais are officially part of the Burgundy wine region, but wines from those subregions are usually referred to by their individual names rather than as "Burgundy wines".
