Tour and wine tasting at a local domain in Meursault
The notion of “terroir” is essential in Burgundy. It is the foundation of the wines expression.

The vines of the Chateau de Meursault are ideally situated and sheltered from the winds by the mountains on the west .At Meursault, they spread over the quarries. The earth is rich in calcite and well drained, which gives the land all its wealth.

Tour and wine tasting lunch at a local domain (not included - optional 115,00 € per person)

After the lunch, transfer to Beaune.

Tour and wine tasting at a local domain in the city centre of Beaune. Tasting of 6 wines.

A rigorous attention to detail, self-imposed discipline, a desire to learn, a rigorous sense of values, passion and daring, are the qualities that have been handed down through the generations, together with the art of winemaking and a never ending search for quality.
