Tempus fugit, memento mori (Beaune, Burgundy)

(This was a very nice wine shop that was also a small restaurant. It is no more. Any reader who remembers it, in the centre of Beaune? It also shows a clever way of using old barrel staves to build wine racks.)

The small town of Beaune is the undisputed capital of the Côte d’Or, the heart of Burgundy’s vineyards. The centre is full of restaurants and quite a few cafés. There are busy shopping streets and quite a few wine shops (but be careful – there are some tourist traps of course).

There are also plenty of historical monuments, the one standing head and shoulder above all others is the Hospices de Beaune, also called Hôtel Dieu – the medieval hospital founded in 1443. It is also the prime example of the typical colourful Burgundian roof tiles.

Beaune has a population of 22,000 and is part of the departement Côte d’Or in the Bourgogne region. It is a good place to stay if one wants to explore the wines and vineyards of Burgundy.
