Our Wine and Beyond range has been designed to provide the opportunity to discover two aspects of a specific region. With our Wine and Gastronomy breaks in Burgundy, sample some of the best wines in the region and enjoy the very best local gastronomy with a triple Michelin-starred dining experience.
Maison Lameloise is a true institution of French gastronomy and of French art de vivre. This old 15th century coaching inn has been a restaurant since 1921, and has seen three generations of Lameloise Chefs: Pierre, Jean and Jacques. Since 2008, Eric Pras has taken over in the kitchen and is ensuring that each innovative dish remains inspired by the traditional Burgundy recipes of his predecessors.
Upon arrival in the village of Chagny, check into your preferred room at Maison Lameloise. The remainder of the afternoon will be free for you to settle in and enjoy your pleasant surroundings. In the evening, a four course gastronomic dinner will be served in the hotel’s triple Michelin-starred restaurant. Please note that drinks have not been included as part of the package, and can be ordered and paid for locally on the day.
On day two, you will be met at your hotel by an English-speaking specialist driver/guide, who will accompany you throughout the day on a private transported tour of the Burgundy world-famous wine region. Today, you will visit two prestigious wineries in the Côte de Beaune, the true home of the Chardonnay grape. You will learn all about this sought after appellation and you will of course also have the opportunity to sample some delicious traditional local dishes. Starting in the revered village of Puligny-Montrachet, you will be welcomed as the guests of one of the biggest names in the village. The experience will include an hour spent learning about the work in the vineyard before returning to their winery in the centre of the village, where you will enjoy a tour of their cellars. Following the tour, the group will transfer to their tasting rooms where a broad tasting of nine wines from the Côte de Beaune will be offered alongside a delightful three course lunch.
You will then visit a prestigious producer of red and white Burgundy wines. Here, enjoy an insightful tasting workshop with a wine expert, who will guide you through a selection of the estate’s wines. The tasting will focus on the concept of terroir. There will be a maximum of eight guests on the tour. You will be taken back to your hotel at the end of the day. The evening will be free for you to do as you please. We would be pleased to recommend a restaurant for dinner this evening if required.
If you opt for the four day package, your driver/guide will return on day three for a second day of tours and tastings, this time in the renowned Côte de Nuits, to samplt the region’s Pinot Noirs. One of the highlights of the day will be a visit to a premium domaine in the quaint village of Aloxe-Corton, the only village in Burgundy to boast both red and white Grand Cru wines. You will see their vineyards and historic cellars, and conclude your visit with a three course lunch, accompanied by six of their Grand Cru wines. In the afternoon, you will be taken to a second well-regarded winery. Here, you will visit the historic cellars and taste five wines including a Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru. A third visit will be arranged at another Côte de Nuits domaine before going back to your hotel at the end of the day. The evening will again be free for you to do as you please.
