LeDomduVin: Burgundy Wine Regions Map
by @ledomduvin 2022
Still preparing some slides for a "Bordeaux vs Burgundy" Wine Class, and, once again, as I could not find anything I wanted on the net, (either too detailed or not enough), I decided to create my own map.
While creating my own map and drawings/icons for the slides, I realized that:
- It is not as easy as it looks, and therefore takes time, and attention to details.
- It is not so easy to compromise on the details, and decide what to put on it or not, when creating a map or an overview with icons and numbers, to make it easy to grasp and understand at first glance, yet, to also be detailed enough to provide you with the essentials.
However, I tried and here is the result. Hope it might help and even be useful.
Cheers! Santé! And drink some wines, it is good for you (responsibly of course), and you might save a producer.
Big thoughts to all the producers fighting against a wave of late frost, these last few days, with temperatures going way below 0°C, in the vineyards, in France (and elsewhere in Europe), for the 5th consecutive year.
Climate change is a real thing and this wave of late frost is now a recurring problem that might become the norm.
A disaster damaging and reducing crops, putting some people out of business and pushing prices up due to small production and thus lack of availability and stocks for the last few years already.
Until when the producers will be able to resist and survive? It has been a recurring question on everyone's lips in Burgundy and Bordeaux (and elsewhere in France and Europe) for the past 5 years already...
Good luck to them all. And let's buy their wines to help them.
