Designation in French Burgundy for a vineyard or a site of smaller dimensions. Climats are sections of sites or appellations that are characterised by ownership and/or a special terroir or climatic conditions. The phenomenon occurs mainly in Burgundy and has been taken into account in the Burgundy Classification. The Burgundian climats were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2015. Other designations for qualitatively outstanding areas are Clos, Côte, Cru and Lieu-dit. A list of all keywords relevant to vineyards is included under vineyard area.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
