in burgundy: 08 jan 14…



An early-ish start this morning as I had an appointment in the Côte Chalonnaise at 9:00am. All the way from Beaune, Mont Blanc was in silhouette as the sun was rising behind – if I’d had a longer lens with me, my picture would have looked closer and better – next time! In the ‘jargon’ this is a ‘100% crop’ from my image…


Anyway, visited a couple of Châteaux or three, had a nice lunch in virtually the only place that was open today – still, it was tasty enough and only €21 for the 3 courses. I then headed back to Beaune for a 3:00pm tasting, mooched around Athenaeum and picked up some wines I’d ordered (of-course!).

And wasn’t Beaune rather pretty in the early evening…

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    Chateau de Rully is especially lovely. Is it Still in Rodet’s hands? Welcome to “down south” 🙂 . The water here is lovely!

      The Chateau – not exactly I think as it’s a Monument Nationale, but the Ch.Rully vines are all en fermage to Rodet…
