Burgundy and the UNESCO World Heritage Program
The “climates” of Burgundy filed in 2002 to be recognized as a World Heritage Region. The regions of Côte de Nuits and Beaune are among the most prestigious in the world and deserve by their quality and diversity to be part of the World Heritage Program. “Climate” is the local word for “terroir”: I explained all about it on my site. The maps will give you an idea of the complexity and richness of Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune.
If you are familiar with my site, you - hopefully - enjoyed the beautiful photos of Michel Joly. Michel’s pictures were selected to be shown on the exhibitions taking place all around the year in Dijon, Beaune, Clos de Vougeot and Nuits-Saint-Georges.
