Burgundy climats and clos
The Burgundy 'climats' designate little patches of vines well delimited which differ from each other by their extremely singular characteristics (geology, altitude, exposure, grape variety...) When enclosed by a low stone wall, climats are called 'clos', like the Clos de Vougeot. There are exactly 1,463 climats in Burgundy, some known since the Middle Ages. Their size varies, from a few ares for the smallest to a few dozen hectares for the largest. Since 2015, the 'Climats, terroirs of Burgundy' have been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage.
