Description


This is a 1771 Rigobert Bonne decorative map of the French regions of Provence and Dauphiné. The map depicts the regions in full from Savoy to the Mediterranean and from Languedoc to Nice. Nice, Cannes, St. Tropez, Toulon, and many other cities are identified. Numerous rivers also meander their way across the map.

The Dauphiné, known as the playground of Europe's elite, is admired for its stunning natural beauty, distinctive culture, superb cuisine, delightful beaches, and fantastic wines. Isere is known for its production of Bleu du Vercors-Sassenage, a mild cow's milk blue cheese, and Saint-Marcellin, a softer cheese, while Drome is famous for its production of Picodon, a spicy goats-milk cheese. The Hautes Alpes area of France is known for its production of Coteaux and Collines Rhodaniennes wines, and is also famous for its chestnuts.

This area also houses a number of vineyards. Here you will find the AOC Coteaux varois en Provence, which produces a wide variety of reds and whites. The red wines principally use the grenache, cinsaut, mourvedre and syrah grapes. White wines use the clairette, grenache blanc, rolle blanc, Semillon Blanc, and Ugni Blanc. A large decorative title cartouche is situated on the upper right.

This map was drawn by Rigobert Bonne in 1771 for issue in Jean Lattre's Atlas Moderne.
