Burgundy or Chardonnay?

yes, water –
wine; in moderation
of course: red or


Burgundy is a shade of reddish brown associated with the Burgundy wine
of the same name, which in turn is named after the Burgundy region of
France which in turn is named after the ancient Burgundians, a Germanic tribe.
The color burgundy is similar to other shades of dark red such as maroon,
cordovan, and oxblood, but differs from each of these in subtle ways.
For example, cordovan with its origin in equine leather used for shoes
has a slightly fairer, lighter brown color whilst oxblood, typically
used in description of clothing, in particular leather,has both a much
richer red and a little more blue.
The first recorded use of “burgundy” as a color name in English was in 1881.
“Burgundies”—are dry red wines made from Pinot noir grapes
and white wines made from Chardonnay grapes.
