Description: Antique map titled 'Dépt. de Saône et Loire'. Map of the French department of Saone et Loire, France. Part of France's important Burgundy or Bourgogne Wine Region. Produces Mercurey and Givry among other red wines. Around Mâcon are whites of fine quality, notably Rully, Montagny, and also Pouilly-Fuissé, a dry, heady wine with much bouquet. The map is surrounded by elaborate decorative engravings designed to illustrate both the natural beauty and trade richness of the land. There is a short textual history of the regions depicted on both the left and right sides of the map. This map originates from ‘Atlas National de la France Illustré’ by V. Levasseur.
