“We booked a half-day wine tasting and free time in the town of Beaune.
The organization was perfect, the tasting was excellent, and our guide Gabriel was fantastic! He was able to take us on a trip through his passion for oenology and answer all our questions! Highly recommended!”

“Antonin, our guide, was very attentive, really knew his stuff, and showed us magical places, especially at harvest time! He pampered us without overdoing it! In addition, he was on time and took us to the hotel in a very clean vehicle. We had a very enjoyable time. Perfect tasting, especially at the Château de Marsannay.”
The most renowned varietals in Burgundy
This varietal has made the best red wines in Burgundy famous. It has seeds and thin, delicate skin. They produce a sweet, colourless juice. A varied range of aromas and expressions emerges from it due to the nature of the terroir from which it originates. Pinot Noir wines have great aging potential.
This is a white varietal with notes of citrus, dried fruit, or brioche. A descendant of Pinot Noir, it produces exceptional white wines that can be kept for a few years. Chardonnay bunches produce sweet, abundant juice. Chardonnay wines from Burgundy are generally fine and elegant.
This is a black varietal with very fertile white juice whose juicy bunches and berries are of medium size. It produces very fruity, fresh, gourmet red wines. It is more often referred to as “Gamay noir à jus blanc.” Along with Pinot Noir, it is one of the preferred varietals for the great red wines of certain Burgundian villages, particularly Mâcon.
This is a fairly productive white varietal that produces clear, acidic, fresh, light white wines. It is given different names according to the region in which it is grown, such as Griset Blanc in Beaune or Giboudot Blanc in Chalonnais. It is used in Bourgogne-Aligoté, Bouzeron, and Crémant-de-Bourgogne.
