Burgundy’s Grand Cru wine route

chassagne montrachet sceneFrom Santenay through Chassagne-Montrachet, Mersault, Nuits St Georges, Beaune, Gevrey-Chambertin and all the other famous names of 37 villages on the Cote d’Or to Dijon, the Route Touristique des Grands Crus de Bourgogne is a well-signposted route for cars, cycling or walking exploring the vineyards of Burgundy. Apart from the main towns, the area is usually quiet and travelling off the main roads does help to reveal some of the nuances of the landscape which make some areas more special than others,
