For lovers of Burgundy’s smooth, oaky Chardonnays who would like to immerse themselves in the white wines of the world-famous Côte de Beaune, this Burgundy wine tour may be the answer. All of our Essential tours are designed to provide guests with an in-depth insight into the wonderful wine regions, in a short amount of time and the package is available mid-week and weekends throughout the year, with the exception of January and December.
After check into the 4* boutique hotel, Le Montrachet in the heart of Puligny-Montrachet and spending a relaxing evening enjoying your pleasant surroundings, you will be welcomed as the guests of one of the biggest names in the village on the morning of day two. The experience with them 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 estate. Following the tour, you will be taken 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. The owners and staff are very gracious hosts and the wine tastings and meal always prove both enjoyable and enlightening. In the afternoon, you will be taken to the magnificent Château de Chassagne-Montrachet. Here, enjoy a full tour of the Château’s beautiful cellars dating back to the 11th and 14th Centuries, and your tour will conclude with tastings of five wines from across the region.
For those staying an additional night, we will arrange for you to be taken to Beaune for the day. Here, you will firstly be taken on a tour of the cellars of a local wine-maker and a tasting session of six Burgundy wines will then ensue. A four course lunch with wines, water and coffee will then be served in a traditional restaurant in the town centre. Before being taken back to Puligny-Montrachet, you will have a free afternoon to explore Beaune, taking in famous sights such as the Hospices and the Notre Dame basilica. Beaune is an ancient walled city, with about half of the battlements, ramparts, and the moat, having survived and in remaining in good condition, and the central “old town” is extensive. The town holds a major fine food market on Saturdays, where there are a large number of stall holders supplying a broad selection of products and specialties from Burgundy and the surrounding regions.
