Presentation :

Today there remain only around thirty hectares of the vineyards of Dijonnais, formerly called "Dijonnois", while the latter had several hundred from the Middle Ages to the end of the 17th century, including plantations on Daix, Talant , Saint-Apollinaire or Fontaine. These wines were better appreciated in those times than the greatest wines of Gevrey or Vosne. In the collective work Vines and wines of Dijon: Forgetting and Renaissance; Jacky Rigaux and Jean-Pierre Garcia told us about the rich past of the Dijon vineyard.

In this book intended for a wide audience, Jacky Rigaux, an eminent terroir specialist, discusses the reasons for the disappearance and return to the forefront of Côte Dijon wines.

The author:

Jacky Rigaux is responsible for “continuing education” at the University of Burgundy. Author of numerous works in the human sciences and on wine-growing terroirs, he promotes two original diplomas: "Wine and Culture" and "Practice of tasting through knowledge of terroirs".
