Table art and happy tastebuds
In France, gastronomy is an art form that probably is most perfectly expressed in Bourgogne, through:
- prestigious local produce such as Fijon mustard, Charolaise meat, Bresse chickens, snails or even Bourgogne truffels, a rare and refined product.
- famous tables served by often Michelin-starred chefs that innovate, revisit the iconic recipes of the region and in particular will make you enjoy memorable gastronomic moments.
Those gastronomic and oenological pleasures are mainly the opportunity to appreciate the conviviality and the sharing mentality that the Bourgogne and its inhabitants demonstrate.
Awakening of the senses
Bourgogne is a region where exceptional wines are produced and whose quality of the soil and the know-how of the wine producers are recognised the world over. A recognition that was officialised in 2015 with the registration of the Climats du vignoble de Bourgogne, or in other words the Bourguignon vineyards, in the Unesco world heritage of Humanity.
In order to never again having to be puzzled about a menu in a bar or the shelf in the supermarket, nothing beats an initiation course in oenology: wine experts share their passion, their experience and the meal-wine combinations they appreciate.
Haute couture Bourgogne
Crossed by rivers and canals, populated with forests, lakes and hills, Bourgogne is one of a kind. Natural sites like Roche de Solutré or human creations like the locks of Sardy will definitely not prove the opposite. A cultural destination, the Bourgogne hosts timeless events every year like the festival of crime films in Beaune, the festival of the word in Charité-sur-Loire or Theatre in May in Dijon.
The Bourgogne is the reflex you need for an authentic weekend
