The word(s) on Burg

Some of my favorite quotes on my favorite wine region:

Harry Waugh (left), when asked if he’d ever confused Bordeaux for Burgundy:”Not since lunch.”

Isak Dinesen: “There are many ways to the recognition of truth, and Burgundy is one of them.”

Jean-Robert Pitte, in “Bordeaux/Burgundy: A Vintage Rivalry”: “Bordeaux makes you piss. Burgundy makes you fuck.”

Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin: “Burgundy makes you think of silly things, Bordeaux makes you talk of them and Champagne makes you do them.”
