Guided tour of the Hospices of Beaune
Typical example of Burgundy flamboyant gothic style, this former hospital founded in 1443 by the chancellor Nicolas Rolin and his wife Guigone de Salins is the testimony of the Flemish influence on the duchy of Burgundy. As far as architecture, it is worldwide famous for its colourful polychromatic glazed tile roofs. The Last Judgment triptych painting by Flemish painter Rogier Van der Weyden is the highlight of the visit. You will tour the Salle des Pôvres (where the sick ones were looked after), the kitchens, the pharmacy and other rooms exhibiting artefacts and tapestries.
While we are in the vineyards we will give you a clear and entertaining presentation of the difference between the appellations “Village, 1er Cru and Grand Crus”. Here the Chardonnay is at its best!
Tour, wine tasting and lunch at a local domain in Santenay
A true authentic moment at Prosper Maufoux in Santenay. Founded in 1860, the house is situated on the main square. The superb vaulted cellars constructed over two levels, the oldest of which dates back to the 15th Century. It is in this context that we have the pleasure of showing you the jewels from the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits.
Drive to Meursault through the Grands crus roads. Sightseeing of the famous Batard-Montrachet, Montrachet, Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet and Chevalier-Montrachet.
Tour and wine tasting at domain in Meursault
In 1848, Jean Ropiteau who was 24 founded his own wine house. The railway had just arrived in Meursault and Jean had the intuition that it would help make the fame of Burgundian wines. The name Ropiteau soon became synonymous to great white Burgundy wines. The cellars date back to the 15th century and are among the most prestigious in Burgundy.
