In Burgundy and along the Rhône in particular, the French term used to describe a unit of vineyard area of rather small size, which may also be a small plot within a larger site or appellation. Other designations for qualitatively outstanding areas are Climat, Clos, Côte and Cru. A list of all keywords relevant to the vineyard area can be found 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
