Guided Tour of the Hospices de Beaune
Typical example of Burgundy flamboyant gothic style, this former hospital founded in 1443 by the chancellor Nicolas Rolin and his wife Guigone de Salins is the testimony of the Flemish influence on the duchy of Burgundy. As far as architecture, it is worldwide famous for its colorful polychromatic glazed tile roofs. The Last Judgment triptych painting by Flemish painter Rogier Van Der Weyden is the highlight of the visit. You will tour the Salle des Pôvres (where the sick ones were looked after), the kitchens, the pharmacy and other rooms exhibiting artifacts and tapestries.
Picturesque Drive Through the Famous Villages of Pommard, Volnay and Meursault
Tour and wine tasting at a local domain in Meursault. The notion of “terroir” is essential in Burgundy. It is the foundation of the wines expression. The vines of the Château de Meursault are ideally situated and sheltered from the winds by the mountains on the west. At Meursault, they spread over the quarries. The earth is rich in calcite and well drained, which gives the land all its wealth. Tour and wine tasting lunch at a local domain. (NOT INCLUDED — OPTIONAL 115€ per person)
After Lunch, Transfer to Beaune
Tour and wine tasting at a local domain in the city centre of Beaune. Tasting of 6 wines… Founded in Beaune in 1880, Maison Joseph Drouhin’s cellars have spread from the historical Cellars of the Dukes of Burgundy and the Kings of France in Beaune (12th-18th centuries) to the Moulin de Vaudon, an 18th Century watermill in Chablis. A rigorous attention to detail, self-imposed discipline, a desire to learn, a rigorous sense of values, passion and daring, are the qualities that have been handed down through the generations, together with the art of winemaking and a never ending search for quality.
