Wine tour in Côte de Beaune

« From Corton to Montrachet » is a wine tour in Côte de Beaune with a tasting of 6 grands crus & premiers crus.

The itinerant tasting “From Corton to Montrachet” throws you into the universe of the great white and red Burgundy wines for 2 hours.

Our wine tour in Côte de Beaune is organised every day (except for Saturday) from April to October. Designed exclusively for two people, this wine tour enables you to discover the Côte de Beaune, driving comfortably through the vineyard tracks in our Wrangler jeep. The idea is to drive up high to make the most of the beautiful views over the vineyards. It’s the moment to talk about oenology, to understand the hierarchy of the appellations in situ, the vegetative cycle and the seasonal work in the vineyards.

Between Corton and Montrachet, you will taste 6 wines (3 whites and 3 reds), 1er cru wines and 1 grand cru wines, over 2 tasting stops. In the heart of the Clos des Mouches in Beaune and facing the Montrachet vines, we will learn about tasting methods and the flavours and aromas of Burgundy wines in order to fully appreciate the complexity of the 1er and grand cru wines that have been selected. Taste a Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru facing the vineyard from which it comes will, without doubt, leave you with an unforgettable memory!
