The fourth viticultural zone -- Beaujolais -- is the result of a bulge in basement granite.
The Côte d'Or "dominates the Bressan plain from Dijon to Maranges at a height of 150 - 200 metres" (bourgogne-wines.com).
I have begun a process to set the record straight by, first, identifying the locations where Kimmeridgian soils can actually be found and, second, clarifying what soil types are to be found in Champagne, Burgundy, and the Loire. Excluding Chablis, the Burgundy vineyards occupy hills and slopes along a 100-mile (160-km) stretch of the western side of the Sâone Valley.
The region is noted for its diversity of soils -- both within and between vineyards -- but still sees "a unity of geology and soil" from north to south; a unity characterized by sedimentary soils comprised of clay, marls, and limestone over an older substrate of granite, lava, and schist.
In some villages, Liassic and Triassic soils surface.
In the south the cap rock is Bajocian limestone while some soils are Liassic/Triassic assemblages with a high clay content while others are mid- and upper Jurassic assemblages where hard limestones and softer marls alternate.
Relationships and implications for effects of acid precipitation on surface water in the northeastern United States. Distribution of rocks and soils in Northeast counties were investigated for the degree to which they influence p H and alkalinity in surface waters. Using 283 counties, path analysis resulted in two models of equivalent explanatory power. Relationships and implications for effects of acid precipitation on surface water in the northeastern United States. The sea withdrew approximately 65 million years ago and erosion of the exposed sedimentary rocks led to the creation of valleys and clay-limestone soils.Thirty million years ago (Tertiary era), the action of the African plate pushing against the European plate resulted in the formation of Mont Blanc and the Massif Central as well as the landscape in evidence today between Dijon and Macon.
