Do you know what a « Climat » is in the context of Bourgogne wines?

This is a typically Burgundian word

In Bourgogne, the word « Climat » has nothing to do with the weather. It’s a word used to describe a place where vines are grown. It refers to a specific plot of land that is precisely delimited, which is vinified separately, and gives its name to the wine produced there.

There are more than 1,200 Climats within the site listed on the UNESCO World Heritage wines.
