Burgundy in Fall

Right now the grapes hang heavy on the vines. It’s a perfect time to walk the vineyards of your favorite wine region. Burgundy should be one of them. After all, everyone in the know defaults to “Burgundy” when they want to refer to fine wine–or fine anything, really. You don’t hear people saying, “she aged well, like a fine Roero Arneis.”

I like the small villages of Burgundy. You can easily walk between them. Each has its own character. Beaune is one of my favorites. It’s large enough to have several fine restaurants.

If I had a car, I’d certainly want to stay in the Burgundian countryside, maybe near a lake. Then I’d go taste wine during the day, maybe stopping at a restaurant for a bit of pâté en croûte before coming home to sop up the view in my chalet. You (and up to 5 friends) can do that inexpensively in that Beaune holiday get away you see over there to the right.

Imagine, you and your glass of fine old Burgundy, pacing up and down your terrace, waiting for your princess, who is aging like a fine old Roero Arneis, to finish basting the duck in the oven so you can dig into you slab of foie gras together.

Now that’s living, eh?
