If you are interested in the subject of terroir or have a favourite French vineyard you wish you knew more about, there is a website that may be the closest thing to being there. It’s called Burgmap, and the Burgundy map is a thing of beauty, but don’t be mislead: there are also maps for RhôneBordeaux, and Beaujolais. Think of it as a bit like Google Maps, but with all the non-wine noise removed. The vineyards are clearly delineated and you can even switch from map view to a satellite view. Imagine being able to pick your favourite wine, locate the vineyard and then explore the nearby area to see what other gems you might discover.
It’s dangerously addictive. Give it a try!
