Terre en Vues

Terre en Vues est née en 2000. Cette société de reportage dont l'objectif premier est la diffusion d'images, notamment dans le domaine de la vigne et du vin, est installée au coeur du vignoble bourguignon.

Sophie et Christian Bon ont naturellement fait évoluer leurs activités vers l'édition d'ouvrages illustrés par les photographies de Christian Bon.

Aujourd'hui, l'édition représente l'essentiel de l'activité de Terre en Vues, une maison d'édition qui n'exclut aucun genre en privilégiant toutefois une collection sur la connaissance des terroirs.

The illustrious wines of Gevrey-Chambertin undoubtedly comprise all the virtues that constitute a great terroir. Flowing from the typicity of its superior vineyards, the wine produced here shows such a remarkable diversity of expression that it has become a natural advocate for the cause of terroirs – particularly in a global context where some would like to impose reductionist and profitable forms of technology.

This new edition will lead you to discover how the Gauls, followed by the Gallo-Romas, the Burgundians and the winegrowing monks, created the contours of this fascinating mosaic of climats around Gevrey-Chambertin. Familiarize yourself with the characteristics of the terroir of Gevrey-Chambertin and immerse yourself in an intimate knowledge of the numerous named locations and their own unique wines.

With its 600 hectares, Gevrey-Chambertin is the largest village-named appellation of the Côte de Nuits, with the most Grands Crus (9 in total), endowed with 27 Premiers Crus, the most famous of which is Clos Saint-Jacques, and also containing the most notable of Burgundy growths, the famous Clos de Bèze.

 

Maps drawn by François Vannier and Emmanuel Chevigny, and geographical cross-sections done by Michel Campy complete the author’s texts and make this work a precious guide. The photos taken by Christian Bon are an invitation to discover or to gain a more intimate knowledge of the lovely vineyards of Gevrey-Chambertin!
