Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
Small segment of the Route des Grands Crus (roughly, "road of the great wines"), a French tourist route situated in Burgundy. The approximately 60-kilometre route runs along the foot of the Côte d'Or escarpment, from Dijon in the north to Santenay in the south. Thus it passes through many of the great appellations of Burgundy wine, hence the name of the route. It takes the visitor through the vineyards of the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune and the back hills (Hautes-Côtes) behind and above the wine slopes. It is punctuated by 33 villages or little towns, including Beaune, many of which have picturesque churches. For route details see: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Route_des_Grands_Crus
