It’s time for the results of the previous trivia question:
If we exclude Burgundy from the equation, what is the smallest AOC in France?
What is this AOC? Which region does it belong to? What’s the main / only variety used there? Within which other AOC is it enclaved?
All answers were found by the Drunken Cyclist, congratulations! The smallest AOC outside of Burgundy is indeed Chateau-Grillet, enclaved within Condrieu and using the same variety, Viognier in the Northern Rhone region.
The new question should be easy of you have read some previous entries from my blog. What grape variety was banned by the Dukes of Burgundy because it was “disloyal”? Subsidiary questions: which wine tasting knightly order was founded in Burgundy? Which castle is their basis of operations?
