the beaune appellation on the web

interactive beaune mapFrom the BIVB:

“The producers of the Beaune appellation have just launched a site dedicated to the vineyard of the capital of Burgundy wines. A true wealth of information about this appellation, which is little-known (compared to neighbouring Pommard and Volnay) despite covering the most surface area in the Côte de Beaune. The site features domaines, maisons, an explanatory map of the terroirs, tasting tips and wine tourism: it would be difficult to be more exhaustive.”


Everything seems to be ‘en Français’ right now, but even the nonspeakers/readers can have fun with a lovely interactive map of the appellation here. Plenty of links to Beaune-based négoce and domaines amongst vintage info and historical notes. Worth a peek…

    Found this one a couple of weeks ago from an article in aujourd’hui handy for the reference to the 1er La Mignotee
    if nothing else, I also like the refernce to some white from l’Ecu but no producers shown ?
