The iron ochres of France's Bourgogne region bring the grapes of Burgundy wine their distinctive flavour profile- and they also make quite a good Natural Earth pigment. Puisaye Hematite is named for the quarries in which it is mined, which have been in operation since the Roman occupation. The ochres of Bourgogne are different from the ochres of the Luberon in their sedimentary matrix: While Luberon iron oxides tend to be suspended in Kaolinite, the oxides in the North of France are suspended in Limestone, which is easier to smelt into metallic iron, and gives Puisaye Hematite its darker brown hue.
