Village of Saint Aubin in Burgundy
As we mentioned in our previous Photos of the Day, we spent a week in Burgundy, renting a home in the village of Puligny Montrachet. Traveling up to the hillside vineyards we took Highway D113. The D113 is a beautiful country road that runs from Beaune to Santenay. Just behind the famed Grand Cru vineyards of Puligny Montrachet and Chassagne Montrachet sits the village of Saint Aubin. It is situated in a small valley all its own. This is a view from another road that comes into D113, and it is a spectacular setting. It is said by many wine experts that Saint Aubin White Burgundies live in the shadow of the Grand Cru White Burgundies of the Montrachet villages. The Grand Cru wines of Montrachet are very expensive and the Saint Aubin wines are significantly less in price. Check out this article in Decanter Magazine on the wines of Saint Aubin.
