A Wine Bar Crawl in Beaune
Burgundy is one of my favorite places in France, but going wine tasting at the famed Domaines isn't always that easy, especially if you planned the trip on a whim, as many are by appointment only. I recommend hitting up the fabulous wine bars in the medieval city of Beaune. Bar du Square, just outside the walled city, is one of my favorites. It's a local hangout where you'll see winemakers eating pissaladière and sipping wine with their families. Inside, daily by the glass offerings like Puligny-Montrachet, Saint-Véran, Mâcon, and Saint-Roman are scrawled on a chalkboard and no you're not seeing a mirage. These are among the best wines in the world and typically all are well under 10 euros a glass. Afterwards, continue your crawl by going to Bistro du Coin and La Dilettante.
