Bourgogne are wines from Burgundy, made from Pinot Noir or Chardonnay.

Riversaltes are fortified dessert wines made from Muscat, Grenache and/or Malvoisie grapes.

Monbazillac wines are sweet wines from the Dordogne region, made from Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Moelleux is just a French term that roughly means off-dry.
