The decision was taken on Saturday July 4, 2015 in Bonn by the Intergovernmental Committee: from now on, the hillsides, houses and cellars of Champagne as well as the 1247 climats of Burgundy, divided between the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits, are part of the heritage Unesco World.
It is a real consecration for these two great wine-growing regions which presented their candidacy in the course of the 2000s, a few years after the town of Saint-Émilion was proclaimed to the rank of evolving cultural landscape for the beauty of its vines and of its architecture.
For Unesco, the hillsides, houses and cellars of Champagne correspond to “places where the method of making sparkling wines was developed, thanks to the second fermentation in the bottle, from its beginnings in the 17th century until its early industrialization in the Nineteenth century “.
The quality and reputation of the houses and wines from these terroirs no longer need to be proven. It is therefore normal to find Wikeeps at the very heart of these appellations: the Jean Monnier estate in Meursault trusts Wikeeps preservation and service systems, as does the Athénaéum de Beaune, where you can taste glasses of wine from the greatest raw thanks to Wikeeps and even buy the product.
Wikeeps preservation and service systems allow you to preserve your finest wines for 20 days after opening, thanks to their gas capsule (mixture of argon and CO2) that comes with the service system.
It has never been so easy and pleasant to enjoy a good glass of wine!
