This version 3.0 features brand new maps of the Marsannay and Marsannay Rosé appellations, following changes that were officially approved by the INAO in November 2019 at the conclusion of a long investigation. Also included here are alterations to the surface area and borders of many lieux-dits and climats in Chenôve, Marsannay-la-Côte, and Couchey which resulted from the updates. In this new division of the vineyards, some lieux-dits and climats completely disappeared, while other, new ones were established. Moreover, there were significant exchanges between the Marsannay and Marsannay Rosé appellations, with certain climats shifting from one of these appellations to the other.
Version 3.0 also offers an updated, expanded presentation of numerous estates and negociant houses (Bruno Clair, Albert Grivault, Armand Rousseau, Hubert de Montille…), as well as updates to the lists of the wines offered by noteworthy producers whose production lineups changed in 2020.
Finally, as with all of our updates, version 3.0 covers an abundance of news from the region, including the passing of the baton at the Association des Climats du Vignoble de Bourgogne, the new faces at certain estates, and the addition of an English-language presentation of the Abbey of Saint-Vivant; and a few minor bugs have been fixed.

Should use this app. It’s the best. And recommended by Christina LaFon. It is so well organized and easy to use. I love this app when I am in burgundy study mode
Hands down the best burgundy resource to date. Leave Clive at home and carry this in your pocket!
Full maps of burgundy in amazing detail, even a button to which from Climats to Lieu-dits. I love the producer index as well as the toponymy, where I can look up the meaning of any name, in particular the names of vineyards.
