From the ground up; how the great wines of Burgundy are born! Taste Montrachet and Clos des Mouches in the vineyard.
Rendez-vous at the Oenothèque
Joseph Drouhin, 1 Cour du Parlement, (GPS address: Place du general Leclerc) 21200 BEAUNE. From here we
will depart south of Beaune directly into the vineyards along small,
winding roads, driving through Pommard and Volnay until we arrive at the
villages from which are born the great white wines of Burgundy;
Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet.
During our excursion you will
learn about viticulture in Burgundy, notions of 'terroir', the
appellation system and the history of viticulture in our region. We
will, of course make a halt at the famous 'Montrachet' Grand Cru parcel and
stop off at our Beaune 'Clos des Mouches' - the flagship wine of the
Drouhin house, to look at this legendary parcel. We will taste both of these wines in the vineyard.
On returning to Beaune, you will
then benefit from a private tour through the labyrinth of our historical
cellars, followed by a tasting of our emblematic wines.
