Wines whites designation of origin A.O.C. Bourgogne
Burgundy is one of the most important wine-growing zones in the world. Is extended on the east of France and the north of the Rhone valley. The planted surface reaches the 25.000 hectares through 250km on the north of Chablis, crossing the regions of Côte d’or and Macôn. The annual production is of 200 millions of bottles and represents a 5% of the total wine production in France. One of the zone features is the huge number of denominations of origin (A.O.C), with more of 100, where sometimes one of them can cover only one wine plot. The “climat” word refers to “terroir” and is indispensable to understand the Burgundy wines which try to focus on each bottle the peculiarities of the land they’ve grown up.
