When we arrived in Beaune on Friday afternoon, we immediately hit the ground running with the main attraction in town.... wine-tasting. The town has several wine cellars, or caves as they call them, where you can taste several different Burgundian wines and of course have a chance to buy them at the end of the tour. Most of the Burgundian grapes are Pinot Noir or Chardonnay, however these grapes would never be listed on the bottle as the classification is buy the terrain/soil and specifically the village/plot where the vineyards are located. Needless to say, after two straight days of wine-tasking we learned a lot, although we barely skimmed the tip of the iceberg. Although we have a great interest in learning more about wine and expanding our wine collection while in Europe, it seems the knowledge is endless. We bought several bottles over the weekend and although the keeping time for most of them is 8-10 years, I guess it's nice to know that we have something to look forward to!
