Domaine Borgnat – Burgundy Guest House

Domaine Bourgnat wine label

In northern Burgundy, just south of Auxerre  (89 Yonne. BFC) and within easy reach of the vineyards of both Chablis and Irancy is the Domaine Borgnat which offers guest house and self-catering (gîte) accommodation at their domain at Escolives, all within the walls of an 18th Century fortified vineyard!
The Domaine Borgnat offers daily wine-tasting sessions and guided tours of the 17th-century cellars and the domain. The guest house is developed in an authentic winery farm from 17th century. Old stones, timbered, great roof in small tiles… very pleasant architecture.

The one-stop shop for train travel

In the heart of the Burgundy wine region you can explore the climats, a regional term that refers to a plot of land whose rich soil and natural conditions are unique. Make a detour to a cellar or museum in the region and learn all about the history, the slopes, the soil composition, the aspect and the microclimate of each of these plots.

In the Côte-d’Or, at the heart of the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune , you can discover Grands crus such as Romanée-Conti or Meursault . Further north, in the Yonne, the famous Chablis is an appellation Grand cru distributed across seven climats. Visit the villages of Givry and Rully en Saône-et-Loire, where you can familiarise yourself with the Premiers crus of the Côte Chalonnaise.

The wines and the AOCs

The wines of Burgundy are rich and varied, and are divided into regional appellations, village appellations, Premiers crus and Grands crus. The Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC) is your guarantee of the characteristics of the regional wines. If you go on an introductory course or a tasting course you can discover the secrets of the great names such as Corton, Montrachet, Chambertin , or more simply the AOC Pouilly-Fumé or Irancy.
