White Burgundy Tasting

Don't know if this is a dumb question but here we go. So I want to host a White Burgundy tasting at my home.  Generally for tastings I like to feature wines that have a direct relationship to each other.  From what I understand about White Burgundy there are four classifications: Grand Cru, Premier Cru, Village and Regional.  I would like to feature one or two wines from each classification that have a direct relationship to one another.  I know that virtually all White Burgundies are made from Chardonnay but I wanted to feature a terroir based relationship between the wines I choose.  Are there any common characteristics that expressed by a particular set of wines across all four classifications?
