Wine & Tourism: La Route des Grands Crus de Bourgogne.
If you are a wine enthusiast, maybe you heard about this long road in Bourgogne. ‘La Route des Vins’ (the Wine Road) or ‘Route des Grands Crus’ (Grands Crus Road) is a 60km long road that goes through the Côte de Nuit and Côte de Beaune, 37 villages and 2 cities, between Dijon and Beaune. Amidst the vineyards, you can enjoy the view… and tasting sessions!
Riding this road, you will recognize some names. All villages you will go through are actually well-known in the world for this reason! All along the Côte de Nuit, you will find the most famous red wines. 24 Grands Crus are situated there. Among them: Romanée-Conti, Clos de Vougeot, Chambertin,… In the Côte de Beaune, you will see the famous vineyards of Corton Charlemagne, Meursault and Montrachet: the Chardonnay heaven!
The main appellations are: Fixin, Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-Saint-Denis, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Pommard, Meursault and Santenay.
What can be better than tasting wine while looking at the vineyard it comes from? Experiencing a tasting session at a Domaine is something unique, an opportunity to talk with the winemaker who will explain all the production processes in the vineyard and the cellar. Sharing their passion, that is the true goal of these hard workers.
