Just a few yards from the Hospices de Beaune, Sensation Vin offers discovering of Burgundy wine, between the more than capable hands of Céline Dandelot and Damien Delattre.
No need to worry whether they’re up to the task: Céline is a skilled professional and Damien directed the Bourgogne École des Vins for fifteen years or so. They now specialise in wine courses for all levels, lasting anything from 90 minutes to two days. Over the past couple of years, our two partners have been running special courses, one on Côtes de Nuit (tasting ten reds), and the other on Côtes de Beaune (seven whites and three reds). Both programmes include an educational tour in the field so you can savour the terroir in person. One last thing: you can also book a one-day course for just the pair of you. In fact, adaptability is Céline’s and Damien’s forte — simply tell them what your requirements are before you arrive.
Le Bistrot Bourguignon: In the heart of Beaune, this typical French bistro is the oldest wine bar in Burgundy. It has a cosy, relaxed atmosphere, and serves up traditional and regional cuisine: Burgundy snails with parsley, for instance, venison steak with cranberries or oeufs en meurette.
Hôtel le Cep: In the mediaeval town of Beaune. This four-star hotel (part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World scheme) boasts 65 sumptuous, individualised rooms adorned with sophisticated décor and fine fabrics. Le Cep is home to a starred restaurant, the Loiseau des Vignes, together with a wellness area and spa offering twelve sensory experiences. What more could you want?
