Discover Bourgogne Aujourd'hui!


03/03/2014

Who are we ? What is Bourgogne Aujourd'hui ? This French magazine, which is presented to you today in english on Internet, was founded in 1994 by Burgundians. Seven issues, one of which is a special edition, are published every year. Today still, the magazine is written by journalists who live in Burgundy, and who therefore have a deep understanding of the region; and access to information unobtainable by others, despite their professionalism.

The other key fact about the magazine is independence : capital and edition. No subject is taboo; and above all, opinions expressed by the magazine are « ordered » by the absolute necessity to objectively inform the consumer, our readers. If occasionally wineprofessionals, winegrowers and negotiants aren't "satisfied" by our articles, too bad!

The content of the magazine is extremely varied and conscientiously studies the subject, « Burgundy wine», from all points of view : complete buying guides and best wine makers, vertical tastings in companies, presentations of vintages and appellations, history, economy, news, technique, gastronomy, Burgundy « travel guides », etc. The magazine also examines other regions since three special issues per year are proposed (Beaujolais and crémants); and more recently, studies are carried out on other regions: minerals of Alsacian grands crus, the Piémont region, « cousin » of Burgundy, etc.

The tastings and buying guides constitute the core of the magazine. Every year about 7 000 - 8 000 samples are totally blind tasted by journalists from the magazine, but also by enologists, knowledgeable amateurs, wine stewards, merchants, growers, etc. These tastings cover all  appellations, wines in low price ranges, between 5 and 10 euros per bottle to grands crus, selling at 100 euros and much more.

And that's what's essential ! But rather than trying to convince you with long speeches, we prefer giving you free access to a « typical » issue of the magazine. This « discovery » edition was carried out with articles mostly published in the last edition (n°116 - February-March 2014). Happy reading !
