Whilst in France, be sure to discover the Burgundy wine region, situated in central-eastern France, close to the city of Dijon. Here you can find some of the world’s most expensive wines, with Grand Cru, a classification reserved for only the best vineyards.
Covering 60 hectares of vines, the estate of Château Meursault is perfectly positioned in the heart of Burgundy in the Côte de Beaune region. Dating back to the 11th century, more recently the estate has been extended and the vineyards developed to become one of the most prestigious domains of the Côte-d’Or.
Underneath the Chateau and within the outbuildings you can find historic wine cellars from the 12th, 14th and 16th century, of which some were dug out by the Monks of Cîteaux and hold over 2,000 barrels and up to 700,000 bottles of wine.
Here you can taste some of the acclaimed wines from this premium estate, with some of the prestigious wines including Aloxe-Corton, Beaune, Pommard, Volnay and Meursault. Enjoy it best with white meats like roasted chicken, fish and shellfish.
