The French model
One way to explain both the style and price of French Burgundy is to say that the smaller the vineyard area named on the label, the higher both the quality and the cost of the wine. For example, a wine simply named after the village "Meursault" could be made from one or several of more than 80 well-delineated vineyard sites within the appellation.
