Bourgogne today is a 29,000-hectare patchwork, representing 0.4% of the world wine production. No other vineyard so neatly sums up one word – “terroir” – and great quality wines. For what makes Bourgogne wines stand out is the intimate relationship between the soil, influence of the microclimate, grape variety, and work of men. From the northern reaches of Chablis to the southern stretches of the Mâconnais, some of the world’s finest parcels (called Climats) are planted in the limestone-rich soils of Bourgogne.
This collection of vineyards is classified into 84 AOCs at the Régionale, Village, Village Premier Cru, and Grand Cru levels.
