    Route des Crus Between, before, the main compiler through the wine regions in the world-the cote d'Or of Borgo. Stapoiothia and cords to the more areas including villages and vineyards that make excellent wines. Beautiful old villages, vineyards, spectacular views!

    87 km of vineyards from Dijon to Beaune and beyond. 29 villages where everyone makes wine. WINE-Rod region. If you don't like the wine, then go here. Better to the castles of the Loire or in Nice. The cost of a bottle of Regional wine starts from 10 euro, Village wine-from 15, Premier Cru from 20, Grand cru can cost as much as you like, a lot. In Russia, the price list is multiplied by two for three. The main markets are France, export-United States, Japan and China. Grapes, mostly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay-red-white. The first impression of the wine mixed. Against a background of Spanish and Italian are Dim and faded. And then nothing, vtjagivaesh'sja. Fading start to perceive how aesthetics and nejarkost' as sophistication. However, when you try a solar year (last-2010yj) of Pinot Noir refined unexpectedly starts pouring in rustic Spanish Garnacha-Sun adds pale aristocrats plebeian faces flush. FOOD. French cuisine in General not happy. Of course, baguettes, croissants and cheese are great, but everything else, rastashhennoe citations in all cuisines of the world and from this obescenennoe, in original turns dull. Suddenly, but Beef Bourguignon folds before goulash of Soviet stolovki. However, in virtually every restaurant there are Italian dishes, and with them the French often cope better than Italians. PEOPLE. The French are stereotypically galantny and 30-minute charts. Old men in hats. Drink coffee in the morning and evening, and wine from morning till evening. Say, do not become to fight with the Germans in 1940m-it was impossible to refuse a cup of coffee at your favorite terrace and include yourself in the trench. Zhizneljuby. This is understandable: how not to love life if you always podshofe.

    We hate to use motorways at departure or return from vacation. The road from Dijon to Beaune is very nice. We borrow it for many years. It offers magnificent views of the vines with opportunities to do some tasting stops and why not buy one or two bottles of wines. The crossing night St Georges and Beaune are also very interesting.
