"It's not called the Côte d'Or for nothing. The name means 'Golden Slope', and this gorgeous 60-km hillside is brilliantly luminous, gold-tinted in morning sunlight. This is the most famous part of Burgundy. From its steep slope come the celebrated wines that have made the name of Burgundy famous throughout the world. The hillside runs from Dijon into the countryside beyond the fortified market town of Beaune. Along its length, villages are strung like gems along a country road."
