[Luxus+ Magazine] Wine routes: 5 exceptional itineraries to discover the French vineyards

This summer, how about a wine tour of France? From Corsica to Provence, through Occitania, on foot, by car or by bike, discover this heritage and these landscapes, between tasting and gourmet walk.

 

Great wines in Bourgogne

 

Our visit begins in Bourgogne, between Beaune and Dijon. From the cradle of Chablis in the Yonne to the Mâconnais, the territory of Burgundy wines represents only 3% of the French vineyard, but its hundred or so AOC, of which more than a third are grands crus, makes it a fertile ground for great wines!

Among the six itineraries that can be covered by car, but also by bike, boat or hot air balloon, the Bourgogne Grand Cru route is the most sought-after with its rows of vines dotted with low walls and dry stone enclosures describing 1247 “climats”, these micro-terroirs classified by UNESCO. In short, the ideal route to become familiar with the most emblematic nectars, from Gevrey-Chambertin, to the Clos de Vougeot castle, guardian of the memory of the winegrowing monks.
