These two maps, size 59 X 22.8 inches, are drawn to a scale of 1: 20,000 and contained in a protective tube. They are a perfect reference guide for any Burgundy lover in addition to beautiful works of art. Thanks to rigorous precision, color-coding for wines and appellations, and clearly delineated boundaries of named plots, these maps combine perfect readability with an elegant visual presentation. They are both decorative and authoritative. With the aid of these maps, the user can move among the vineyards along the very same paths that the vignerons take when working on their vines.
"Vineyard maps of such precision and such beautiful detail simply haven't existed until now." Hugh Johnson
"For Burgundy's Côte d'Or, the beautiful wall maps of the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune by Sylvain Pitiot and Pierre Poupon are unsurpassed for their precise yet highly legible detail and clean, sophisticated design." Peter Liem, Wine & Spirits Magazine
Experts recommend acquiring a good map. "Burgundy is marketed and sold on the basis of geography; some familiarity with how it is laid out would help," says Allen Meadows (burghound). Bernie Sun (Head Sommelier, Montrachet Restaurant, New York City) recommends the Sylvain Pitiot map, "I have it on my wall at home," he notes. "When you see the region as a whole, you can start to understand why all the different sites are so important." Beverage Media, January 2005
