of the Burgundy Climates
In 2017, the « Association
of Climats of Burgundy » (Burgundy vineyards) joined the Conseil Départemental
of Côte-d'Or and Côte-d'Or Tourisme to celebrate the 80 years of the Road of Grands
Crus. To celebrate this birthday, we will go back through our history, to allow
you to discover or rediscover the Climates of the Burgundy vineyards.
For the occasion
of the « month of Climates », we will provide you a guided visit of
the oldest cellars of Beaune, which extend for one hectare (2,5 acres) in the
historical heart of the city having belonged to the Canons of Beaune, to the Dukes
of Burgundy, to the Kings of France and since the XIXth century,
property of the family Drouhin.
And to allow you
to discover the complexity of the Climates of Burgundy, we will provide you a
tasting of 7 wines (4 whites and 3 reds), which will take place in the old winery
of the Collegiate church Notre Dame from the XIIIth century, an exceptional
framework for unique wines.
We will welcome
