2000 years of history of the greatest vineyards of Burgundy, a patchwork of numerous parcels named Climats and Lieux-dits that gave this famous region its originality! 2000 years of history of hard-working men who knew how to take advantage of the incredible diversity of the geographical situations and climatic conditions to create an exceptional mosaic of first-class wines, famous all over the world!
This is the first time that this story is told in a comprehensive way, with detailed maps of the 35 wine villages and full explanations of the origin and meaning of the 1463 names of Climats and Lieux-dits!
As Bernard Pivot nicely says: "In Burgundy, when we talk about climate, we don't look at the sky but at the ground".
