- Bourgogne Passetoutgrain constitutes the ideal 'bridge' between Beaujolais and the more complex Pinot Noir wines from northern Burgundy. The fruitiness of the Gamay enables these wines to be drunk very young although some ageing brings forward the rich, savoury character of the Pinot Noir endowing the wine with the full-flavoured appeal and richness of red Burgundy.
