    A day in the Grands Crus : tasting in the vines ! (lunch included)


    The mythical « Routes des Grands Crus » turns many wine lovers'heads for more than 80 years now... ! It is our duty to share it with you... !


    Discover the « Côte de Beaune » with its prestigious white wines and the « Côte de Nuits », Pinot Noir heaven... Look for the bees at the « Clos des Mouches » plot or contemplate the « Montrachet » with a glass of wine ; taste a « Clos de Vougeot » in front of the Château or even a « Petits Monts » next to the « Romanée Conti » plot...

    Let's meet in Beaune between 8:30 and 9am to go, in a very comfortable minibus, on the mythical « Routes des Grands Crus » for a sensorial walk, a « landscape reading », with 4 tasting stops in our emblematic plots of the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits. We will have lunch in a traditional Burgundy restaurant offering « home made » products. We will be back in Beaune by the end of the day, around 5pm.

    From Gevrey-Chambertin to Chassagne-Montrachet, the « Route des Grands Crus » is on a narrow hillside of 50km only. This is where the greatest wines of Brugundy are born. Chardonnay does not find anywhere else such an ideal terroir, as suitable and welcoming as the one of the Côte de Beaune to embellish the most beautiful cellars and tables of the world. The exceptionnal and unique terroir of the Côte de Nuits allows the Pinot Noir to flourish fully and thus produce the most prestigious appellations in the world.

     

    We will taste 4 wines (2 whites and 2 reds) in the middle of their own plots, which will help you to understand the complexity and the diversity of the Burgundy vineyards (2 « Premier Cru » and 2 « Grand Cru » wines).

    With the 3 wines tasted during lunch, you will get the opportunity to taste in total 7 emblematic wines coming from different villages of the « Route des Grands Crus ».

    We will give you a very complete guide about all the appellations of Burgundy, so you can continue to expand your knowledge once at home.
