Beaune “La Montée Rouge”

Beaune “La Montée Rouge” bottle

Encircled by its ramparts and bastions like a cask by its staves, Beaune is, in the words of the architect Viollet-le-Duc, the only town in the world where you actually want to fall ill! The Hôtel-Dieu, built in the middle of the 15th century by Nicolas Rolin, counsellor to Philippe the Good, Duke of Burgundy, is a flamboyant gothic representation of a love story between Burgundy and Flanders in the days of the Order of the Golden Fleece. Sister city of Bruges, Beaune is the capital of Burgundy wine.
