Distribution and Wines
Almost all César is found northwest of Dijon towards Chablis in the département of Yonne. It is best known in the red wines of Irancy, but may also be blended into rosé, clairet and Bourgogne mousseux.
Vine and Viticulture
César is an early budding variety, which makes it very vulnerable to frost in Burgundy. It is also fairly susceptible to mildew.
