1st time in Burgundy

grovina | May 4, 2013 10:38 AM

Hi all, my first post in chow :) First, want to thank you guys for giving so much info in the board.

My husband and I will be on holiday in Paris for a week in early Nov mainly to eat (more on that later), with a side trip to Burgundy - our first time in wine country in France.

Unfortunately we can only afford one night stay in Beaune, near train station (so 2 days actually as we will only leave end of day on Day 2).

Foodwise, we wish to go to Ma Cuisine for dinner and Comte Senard for lunch. We also wish to visit La Cave de l'Ange Gardien as we read great reviews on Tripadvisor. Last but not least, of course we want to visit wineries. We cannot really afford a private tour but we may be able to join in a group tour, say for half or even a day, and perhaps give up something from our must-dos.

1) Is it too much if we eat at Comte Senard and Ma cuisine on same day?
2) If we do not join any tours, but visit Maison Louis Jadot and Maison Joseph Drouhin for tastings (I believe both are walkable within Beaune) and then together with Comte Senard for lunch.. would it be sufficient for an overall 1st burgundy wine experience?
3) Say if we really join a group tour, which one would you recommend, and whch wineries shd we be looking out for?

My husband and I love wine, and admittedly not experts, but Tres excited! Looking forward to any kind of advice.
