Other than drinking and discussing the wines, there’s nothing so valuable as looking at maps to try and find that elusive vineyard. Perhaps it is only Piedmont that comes close to to the diversity of vineyards found in the Côte d’Or. With the exception of the map of Volnay, courtesy and copyright of Kobrand Education this table is a super ‘cartographical resource’ for which I offer them and the artist Michael Juhn many thanks.
The maps are in PDF format, and most are less than 100kb in size – and YES – I know that there are lots of mistakes – but they were given free:
- Here’s a more in-depth look at the Clos de Vougeot (80kb).
- An 1890 map of the Musigny vineyard and it’s ownership (100kb).
- Burgundy 1640. You need to look in the top left hand corner for ‘Nuis’ (850kb).
These maps were newly minted at the end of 2015 and are offered here courtesy, and with the permission of, Inter Beaujolais who are the copyright holders.
Note that the files can be between 9 and 16 megabytes – they will not download in ‘flash:’
