THE CLIMATES OF BURGUNDY

October 2, 2018

 

 

"In Burgundy, when we talk about a Climate, we don't look up to the sky, we lower our eyes to the earth"
BERNARD PIVOT, WRITER AND PRESIDENT OF THE SUPPORT COMMITTEE


In Burgundy, a Climat is a wine-growing terroir combining parcel, grape variety and know-how
The word "Climate" does not refer to the weather but corresponds to a specifically Burgundian term that refers to the wine-growing terroir.

Each Climat de Bourgogne is a carefully delimited parcel of vines, named for centuries, which has its history and benefits from meteorological and geological conditions. Each wine from a Climat has its own taste and its place in the hierarchy of wines (Appellation Régionale, Village, Premier Cru, Grand Cru). The Climates are more than 1000 to succeed each other on a thin ribbon running from Dijon to Santenay, south of Beaune; some responding to famous names in which you will pass, running or rollerblading, as Chambertin, Musigny, Clos de Vougeot...

UNESCO AND WORLD HERITAGE

Since 4 July 2015, the Climats of the Burgundy vineyard have been included on the World Heritage List. World Heritage is one of the various programmes run by UNESCO. It encourages the protection and preservation of cultural, natural and mixed sites. A real acknowledgement!

 

 

THE APP  "TO DISCOVER THE CLIMATES OF BURGUNDY"

 

A free application, to understand everything about the Climates of the Burgundy vineyard. From the system of appellations, to the discovery of their history and heritage.
You will have access, in French and English, to more than 40 articles, some 150 photos and archival documents to help you understand the territory of the Climates, its wines and appellations and its heritage.

 

Not to be missed: short interviews with a winegrower, a merchant, a cooper and a label maker, briefly explaining their profession... and interviews with three scientists, "simple and effective", to become unbeatable on the geology of the terroirs, the appellations in Burgundy, and the meaning of Climats' names.
