The Mystery of the Climats

History of Bourgogne's Greatest Vineyards
With Tanya Morning Star
May 28 2020

Summary:

The 1,247 climats of Bourgogne were recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2015, a well-deserved honor! In fact, there is no better illustration of the concept of terroir than its pure expression through the climats of Bourgogne.

But wait... what is a climat? How is a climat different from a lieu-dit? This lecture will define the concept, evolution, and name origins of the climats, and explore the 2,000-year-old creative collaboration between nature and humans in Bourgogne.
