[France. Wine] Plan des vignobles produisant les grands vins de Bourgogne

Classé pour chaque commune de l'arrondissement de Beaune suivant le mérite des produits. Par les soins du comité d'agriculture de l'arrondissement de Beaune. Et pour l'arrondissement de Dijon, par une société de viticulteurs. Col. lithogr. map after M.I. Bonnamas, on 3 attached sheets, together measuring 45.5 x 285 cm, Beaune, Batault-Morot, n.d. (ed. between 1861 and 1895), kept rolled in orig. wooden box w. printed label of Charles Bernard dated in pen "14 Setbre. 1895" and w. address in pen "Monsieur Charles Durieux Negt. (?) en vins à Marche (Belgique)" and annotation "carte des vignobles", the box (w. remnants of the orig wax seal and paper labels) measures 47.5 x 4.3 x 4.5 cm.

The map rolled, and w. a few sm. tears and pinholes in blank margins, otherwise fine. Very rare separate edition of the map also published in the booklet Plan statistique des vignobles produisant les grands vins de Bourgogne (...), first published in Beaune in 1861. Not coincidentally, the booklet was published just before the great London world exhibition of 1862. The map is divided in areas w. different colours indicating the vineyards of the 1st, 2nd or 3rd classes. The mentioned areas are Santenay, Chassagne, Puligny, Meursault, Auxey, Monthélie, Volnay, Pommard, Beaune, Savigny, Pernand, Aloxe, Serrigny, Prissey, Premeaux, Nuits, Vosne, Flagey-les-Gilly and Vougeot. The very nice (and extremely rare) original wooden box was used to send this copy to wine dealer Charles Durieux in Marche, Belgium, in 1895. The winery Charles Bernard that sent the map, still exists.
