Discover Meursault, Beaune and the Côte d'Or

 
 

"Whoever drinks Meursault neither lives nor dies a fool"

 

Old adage of the Murisaltiens, to be applied with moderation of course!

Meursault is certainly in the heart of Burgundy and offers Chardonnay lovers the promise of many pleasures, but not only ...

 

The Côte de Beaune vineyards extend from Ladoix-Serrigny to Cheilly-les -Marranges, passing through Pommard, Volnay, Puligny-Monrtachet, among others ... The list is not so long of these beautiful appellations that always make lovers of good wine dream ...

Here, it is essentially white, from the Chardonnay grape variety, but you don't have to be a fine oenologist to appreciate the area ...

 

Do not be shy, there are many Burgundians who are not experienced in blind tasting! Notes, dresses, aromas, grape varieties, Climats: if all these terms are still too vague for you, it is certain that you will find the right place in or around Meursault to discover the basics of oenology (and wow the gallery during your next dinners !!)

You will find some good addresses below , but the list is far from exhaustive! Do not hesitate to consult the tourist office (branch of Beaune or Meursault) to complete your visit book ...

Around Meursault shine places full of history , anecdotes and curiosities: Beaune obviously and its famous Hospices (our Guigone and Nicolas apartments bear these names in homage to their founders, Guigone de Salins and Nicolas Rolin).

 

But you can also visit Autun, a large Gallo-Roman site , Dijon of course, capital of the Dukes of Burgundy and its palace, the Abbeys of Cluny and Cîteaux , or the Alésia museum ...

 

Sumptuous places, whose stories are often linked and which place Burgundy in a register other than purely wine.

 
Les Hospices de Beaune

The Hospices de Beaune

In a context of poverty and famine, Nicolas Rolin - chancellor of the Duke of Burgundy - and his wife Guigone de Salins, founded the Hôtel-Dieu de Beaune in 1443 to come to the aid of the "poor sick".

It is a true masterpiece of architecture known worldwide and famous for the brilliance of its main courtyard, the splendor of its roofs with multi-colored and glazed tiles, and all its treasures.
