Beautiful day and sky in Cote de Beaune. Lunch in Puligny-Montrechet, where we had visited about 5 years ago when we were on a Butterfield & Robinson bike trip. Driving or biking is spectacular through the Grand Cru Wine Route, which covers about 21 kilometers between Ladoix-Serrigny and Santenay.
We drove through beautiful ancient villages where clusters of stone houses are adorned with geraniums and roses. The narrow cobbled streets are charming and challenging, and you pray that an oncoming vehicle is not around the next bend. The spectacular open and rolling hills not covered with legendary vineyards are sprinkled with Charolais (white) cattle.
Back to Paris and the Left Bank tomorrow.
