Burgundy, otherwise known as Bourgogne, is a universally renowned wine region, known for crafting top quality wines for an insatiable, discerning global market. Not only is the region constantly growing in popularity, it is the actual Climats of the Bourgogne winegrowing region that is covered by the UNESCO World Heritage List, more accurately the sub-regions of Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits, extending over a 60km geological fault line, including the towns of Dijon and Beaune.
The unique character of the Climats, their position in the hierarchy of Premiers and Grands Crus, and the culture and history of the Bourgogne winegrowing region make this a territory of outstanding universal value. Any change to them would be a major loss for humanity. - Bourgogne-Wines.com
