A 2000-year History of the Greatest Vineyards of Burgundy, a patchwork of numerous parcels named Climats and Lieux-dits have given this famous area its originality!

A 2000-year History of hard working men who have taken advantage of the incredible diversity of geographic situations and climatic conditions to create an exceptional mosaic of top ranked Crus that are famous all around the world!

It is the first time that this story is told exhaustively by displaying the detailed maps of the 35 viticultural villages and giving comprehensive explanations about the origin and meaning of the 1463 cLimats and Lieux-dits names!

As Bernard Pivot nicely says: "In Burgundy, when you talk about the 'climat' you don't lookup at the sky but you look down to the soil"
