Postcard from Beaune

A comfortable stay in Beaune gave us a useful base to explore Bourgogne (Burgundy) and to enjoy the fine wines and fine food of the region, but not too much - we saw some corpulent tourists also enjoying the town. Fine Aligoté, St Romain and Haut Côtes de Beaune, among others. But not the Nuits St Georges... maybe next time!

Beaune is a major tourist destination so although there was a warm welcome in  some places, there was also the distancing of professional hotel management.
