Dijon et sa banlieue viticole du 19ème au 21ème siècle

This lecture (1H15) deals with the history of the legal and economic link between the city of Dijon and the communes of its periphery, in particular those specialising in vine growing.

What were the characteristics of this urban-periurban system at the end of the 19th century and how did it evolve in the 20th century, assuming that the wine-growing suburbs would provide for the consumption of wine by the people of Dijon? In the 19th century, until the phylloxera crisis, this urban-periurban system was very extensive and produced wine of mediocre quality. With the urban expansion of Dijon, the entire vineyard gradually diminished until it almost disappeared in the 1980s, surviving only in Chenôve and Marsannay. However, the Dijon vineyard has since been reconstituted thanks to winegrowers from the southern suburbs, and it is once again producing quality wines in Dijon and the former winegrowing suburbs thanks to the noble grape varieties of Pinot and Chardonnay. Another major question and a challenge for the metropolis at the beginning of the 21st century is how to find a new name by obtaining a new appellation "Burgundy-Dijon" and/or by (re)creating an appellation "Côte de Dijon" distinct from the Côte de Nuits?
