Chablis vineyard tour, includes lunch and tasting in
our cellars in Beaune.
Discover the delights of Chablis and lunch at the
charming Moulin de Vaudon
Join us to discover the
beautiful vineyards of Chablis and learn how this once forgotten area is
enjoying renewed acclaim. The wines of Chablis are unlike the Chardonnays from
more southern areas in Burgundy due to their unique location and terroir.
We will visit the
Premier Cru parcels, and then the Grand Crus, each situated on different sides
of the river Serein. We will taste a glass of Grand Cru from our parcel 'Les
Clos' whilst overlooking the parcel, and learn about Robert Drouhin's passion for
Chablis and how he was instrumental in the revival of this wine region.
The vineyard tour will
be followed by a tasting and a buffet lunch in the grounds of the stunning 18th
century Moulin de Vaudon; a former water mill now owned by the Drouhin family.
We will taste a selection of wines from our Chablis domaine; village, 1er Cru
and Grand Cru, and you could take a stroll in the enchanting grounds or sit and
enjoy a cool glass of refreshing Chablis in the shade of the weeping willow.
In the afternoon, we
will return to Beaune and the historical cellar of the Drouhin family where you
will enjoy a tasting of a selection of our wines, both white and red; giving
you an overview of the various jewels that Burgundy can produce. A fitting end
to a wonderful day.
