In Burgundy the term “climat” (which literally translates as climate) isn’t just about the weather, it’s also about the ground. The “climats of Burgundy” refers to 1247 specific vineyards, each of which has a distinct character. In the autumn, fiery red leaves on the vines echo the shimmering hues of the glazed roofs of Flamboyant Gothic monuments which pepper the land. It’s the perfect time to take a trip by river or canal, passing through medieval villages, spotting Romanesque churches and visiting exceptional vineyards.
