Mapping The Wines of the Burgundy / Côte de Beaune Region

Rare promotional broadside / poster dated 1942, promoting the wine regions of the Côte de Beaune wine region (the southern part of the Côte d'Or) in France's Burgundy wine region.

The map shows the appellations controllées (AOC) of the predominantly white wine growing area of the Côte de Beaune.  The map identifies the Grand Cru appelations, with color coding showing the locations of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd classes, along with other details.

The Côte de Beaune covers Nuits-Saint-Georges and Beaune, and reaching south to the River Dheune.  Red wines are produced in Côte de Nuits to the north, down through Beaune, with the wines becoming lighter and more perfumed further to the south.  The wines of the south part of the region are perhaps best known, including white Burgundies such as Meursault and Chassagne-Montrachet.  At the far south of the district, red wines are produced near Santenay and across the Dheune into the Côte Chalonnaise.

The individual vineyards/vignobles are named and delineated:

  • Appellations de Grand Crus: Bâtard-Montrachet, Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet, Charlemagne, Chevalier-Montrachet, Corton, Corton-Charlemagne, Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet, Montrachet.
  • Appellations communal/communes/villages are marked: Aloxe-Corton, Chassagne-Montrachet, Ladoix-Serrigny, Pernand-Vergelesses, Puligny-Montrachet, Chorey-les-Beaune, Savigny-les-Beaune, Beaune, Pommard, Volnay, Monthélie, Meursault, St Romain, Auxey-Duresses, Blagny, Saint-Aubin, Santenay, Dezize-les-Maranges, Sampigny-les-Maranges, Cheilly-les-Maranges
