Millenials. Technical and intimidating language, aging image… To meet the expectations of its future consumers, the “millennials” generation (25-45 years old), the Interprofession des Vins de Bourgogne has upgraded its website, which is more fluid, dynamic and immersive, but above all better adapted to mobiles, used by 64% of Internet users.

Expensive life.

Violence. Yonne is very involved in the fight against domestic violence.

Focus. Thursday evening, during the community council, the mayor of Chailley Philippe Guinet-Baudin spoke about the project to extend the Duc slaughterhouse. “Chailley is in the headlines, it gives our village a boost,” he said, not without irony.
