Dijon, France – More Than Just Mustard

Published Date Author: , October 31st, 2012

Driving along the “route des Grands Crus,” our guide kept pointing out various esteemed vineyards and winemaking houses – and, whenever we stopped for a photo, admonishing all of us not to taste the grapes or cross the stone walls surrounding the vineyards.

Oh, but how tempting it was: to sneak a bunch of grapes from these illustrious houses – and then to imagine pocketing the grape seeds and planting them in the States. Our own “Grand Crus” grapes in our own backyards!

After all, the “route des Grands Crus” is the “Champs-Elysees” of Burgundy, home to some of France’s most famous labels, including Gevrey-Chambertin, Vosne Romanees, Morey-Saint-Denis, which, in an oenophile’s world, is equivalent to Cartier, Hermes, and Louis Vuitton.
