From Corton to Chambertin
From Corton to Chambertin
A true tasting circuit & wine course to understand the wines of Burgundy, the notion of terroir and micro-climates. This course is punctuated by stops in the heart of the vineyards to taste five premiers crus and five grands crus, all red. In addition to the wines tasted, we cross the Hill of Corton and the Côte de Nuits and its 24 grands cru wines. We go through unusual places only accessible by small wine paths, far from the traffic. Many scenic views allow you to admire the vineyard landscapes from different angles. This program is designed exclusively for 2 people - you spend the day with a Burgundy vineyard specialist for a time of sharing and fun. You can ask any questions you have on the grands crus and the vineyard work and on tasting methods...

Every day (except on Saturday) : Morning 9.30 am to 1.00 pm or Afternoon 2.00 pm to 5.30 pm
