The 8 must-sees
In autumn, the aptly-named Côte-d'Or is covered in shades of gold ("or" in French). The vines are all tinted with gold and other shimmering colours. Each globally-renowned village is fairly close to the last... and the flavours of the wines you'll be tasting will stay with you for a long time, leaving lasting memories.
Marsannay, the three-coloured appellation
Fixin, Noisot Park and tribute to Napoleon
Gevrey-Chambertin, the village with 9 Grands Cru wines
Combe Lavaux Nature Reserve
Vougeot, a symbolic "clos" and château
Cîteaux Abbey, the monks and their cheese
Vosne-Romanée, the steepest vine plots
Nuits-Saint-Georges, home to the Côte de Nuits
Wine cellars and activities
The Dijon, Côte de Nuits territory bears the "Vignobles & découvertes" label, and offers a wide range of wine tourism activities all year round, in the very best conditions.
Are you just passing by as you follow the "Route des Grands Crus" or making a quick detour to Côte-d'Or? Use the mobile application "Balades en Bourgogne" to find your way around (to download free-of-charge from the App Store and Google Play). You can select which route you'd like to follow (by car - along the "Route des Grands Crus de Bourgogne") and a voice will guide you and provide explanations about each village you cross through, and the surrounding area. In your car, all you'll need is a fully charged mobile phone and a Bluetooth speaker!
Passionate cyclists on a bicycle touring trip and families can cycle along the Greenway from Beaune to Marsannay-la-Côte, at the entrance to Dijon. This cycle path bears the "Vélo & Fromages" label and runs alongside the "Route des Grands Crus de Bourgogne". You can download the entire route, along with an audio guide on the free application "Balades en Bourgogne".
