The Bourgogne winegrowing region, a place with a unique heritage, is ideally located on a primary commercial axis linking Northern Europe with the Mediterranean Basin, a historical trading route since the Middle-ages.

The Bourgogne winegrowing region is 150km long and enjoys a climate that is particularly well-suited to vine cultivation. The convergence of Mediterranean, continental and oceanic influences plays a major role in terms of the aromatic richness and global reputation of its wines.

The Climats and lieux-dits give Bourgogne wines their unique identity. Their names bear witness to the region’s rich history. Their origins lie in the environment, local heritage, savoir-faire (know-how) and human history. The Climats confer their own unique organoleptic qualities onto the wines of Bourgogne, such as their appearance, aromas, flavors and texture.

For centuries, the reputation of Bourgogne wines was driven by the monks of Cîteaux, and then by the Dukes of Bourgogne.

In 1935, the National Institute for Origins and Quality (INAO), made official the usage of the word “Climat” and began using it in legal texts applying to all Bourgogne appellations. The Climats are a sign of excellence and on 4 July 2015, the Climats were included on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Today there are 29,000 hectares of vines planted in Burgundy, accounting for 4% of all commercial winegrowing in France. The average production is 170 million bottles per year, 59% white wines, 30% red wines and 11% sparkling wines. The Grand Crus vineyards represent only 1% of the Burgundy production, while the Villages and Premiers Crus represent 46% and the Regional appellation Bourgogne represents 53% of the production.
