The Burgundy Affair

Burgundy

Burgundy is charming – it is calm, quiet, and relaxing. A beautiful countryside paired with some of the best wine in the world and an abundance of culinary delights tend to produce nothing less.

The Route des Grands Crus is a 60km stretch that twists and turns through rolling green hills, from north to south, introducing you to villages such as Nuits-Saint-Georges, Pommard, Volnay, Meursault, Chassagne-Montrachet, all towns that give an intimate glimpse of wine’s most celebrated region.

Although frequently visited by travelers from near and far, we do like to turn off of the main road and make Burgundy ours. One of my little secrets is to enjoy a lunch between the vines at the Table Comte Senard, a restaurant tucked away on the Aloxe-Corton property.

Then, a visit to the Gothic castle of Rochepot located near Beaune is on my list. Beautifully restored and reminiscent of Sleeping Beauty’s castle, this marvel is straight out of a fairytale with its multicolored roof, towers, and double drawbridge. For a true indulgence and absolute favorite treat make a dinner reservation for a Michelin-star dinner in Chagny at Maison Lameloise – no matter which season, our trips to Burgundy always provide us with memories for years to come.
