The towns and villages crossed
Dijon is the capital of Burgundy, a historic region in east-central France and one of the country's main wine-growing areas. It is known for its vineyard tours, its food fair in the fall and its architectural styles, from Gothic to Art Deco. The Museum of Fine Arts dating from 1787 occupies the vast Palace of the Dukes and houses a rich collection of paintings, sculptures, crafts and antiques.
MARSANNAY LA COTE
The commune of Marsannay-la-Côte is located at the gates of Dijon (6 km to the south-west), at the northern end of the Côte de Nuits and the Route des Grands Crus de Bourgogne. It has 186 ha of vines, 202 ha of agricultural area and 523 ha of communal forest.
Chambolle-Musigny is a red wine often presented as the most "feminine" of the Côte de Nuits. Intensity and finesse are indeed expressed with elegant subtlety. To the look, a lively ruby, surrounded by shiny and luminous reflections. It can darken a bit, keeping all its shine.
The village of Couchey, a few kilometers from the city of Dijon, department of Côte d'Or, is a wine-growing village, whose existence dates back several centuries.
This tourist and wine-growing village, located on the Route des Grands Crus between Chambolle-Musigny and Flagey-Echézeaux along the Côte de Nuits, enjoys a worldwide reputation for prestige thanks to its Burgundy wines with a Grand Cru Clos de appellation. Vougeot and four premier cru appellations: Clos de la Perrière, Le Clos Blanc, Les Crâs, Les Petits Vougeots.
Vougeot also ensures the gastronomic folklore of all Burgundy-Franche-Comté with its Château du Clos de Vougeot and its Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin.
