Burgundy (French: “Bourgogne”) is a region that most wine lovers are familiar with. Since the 16th century, “Les Climats”, literally “The Climate”, is a French word closely associated with Burgundy.
“Les Climats” describes not only the particular climate and soil in that region, but also the close connections between human beings and nature and their harmonious relationships developed through collaboration.
It is the unique climate, soil and people that enable a variety of symbolic Burgundy wine desired by many wine lovers. Our Hédène Acacia Honey is also originated there.
Burgundy, like most of the region in Europe, was almost completely submerged into the ocean until the end of the Jurassic period. Over the past 60 million years, various organic debris has accumulated up to kilometers thick limestone of different periods. The roots of the grapes absorb rich minerals in the limestone, creating the unique flavor of Burgundy wines.
