Burgundy Wine Tour from Paris

Paris – Chablis – Noyers-sur-Serein – Domaine Bersan – Bailly-Lapierre – Paris

This trip begins with a drive from Paris to the Chablis region of Burgundy through the lovely French landscape. This picturesque drive will take about two hours to complete and will include a halfway rest break. You will meet the owner or her son at the first winery of the day and walk through their lovely vineyard overlooking the renowned Chablis town.

You will learn the meaning of the term Terroir as you touch with your own hands the Chardonnay trees and the clay soil. You will then visit the huge grape press and see the fermentation and refining of the wine. You will then sit down to taste at least seven distinct wines.

The winemaker will teach you about white Chardonnay grapes ‘ different features. No one understands Chardonnay better than a winemaker from Burgundy, as Chardonnay was grown more than 500 years ago in this region for the first time. You’re also going to learn the difference between a Grand cru and a Premier Cru and why some bottles are labeled as Millesime and others as Cuve.

Next you will visit the beautiful town of Noyers-sur-Serein, chosen by the French people as one of France’s most beautiful villages. This once fortified medieval village will delight you nestled in a bend of the Serein River. With your guide, you will walk through the paved routes and have an hour’s free time to eat dinner (own cost).

After dinner you will find one of Burgundy’s oldest wineries. Since 1453, Domaine Bersan has been a family-run winery. Meet Pierre-Louis, a winemaker of the 21st century, then explore the renowned cellars of Bersan. Dug out in the 11th and 12th centuries by the Knights Templar, today the cellars of Bersan are lined with beautiful oak barrels, full of amazing wine.

At least 5 of his favourite wines will be introduced by Pierre-Louis. In their Red and Rose wines, the Pinot Noir grape sings.

Discover Burgundy’s effervescent side at Bailly-Lapierre, one of Cremant de Bourgogne’s biggest manufacturers, a sensitive sparkling wine produced from grapes from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. You will visit their old subterranean quarry, with galleries stretching for more than 10 acres, 50 meters below ground.

These huge cellars provide the ideal natural circumstances necessary for the manufacturing and subtle effervescence of Cremant wines. You will taste two of their sparkling wines in their very stylish tasting room after your visit to their cellars. Then a nice flute glass will be provided to you to bring home as a souvenir.

Then we’re going to begin the quiet drive back to Paris. It will take just over two hours; halfway through the drive there will be a toilet stop. When you say goodbye to your guide next to the cathedral of Notre-Dame in central Paris, the adventure days will be over.
