Tour and tasting
Louis Bouillot has opened a new wine-tourism site in Nuits-Saint-Georges on the Route des Vins de Bourgogne since May, 19th. La Verrière offers an intimate location where you can discover the secrets to some great Crémant de Bourgogne wines.
Visitors will enjoy an immersion into the heart of sparkling Bourgogne wines with a choice of four themed tastings guided in either French or English for groups from two to 12, in the natural light of the conservatory topped with an Art Nouveau glass roof.
On the Route des Grand Crus, this wonderful 18th century home with its varnished roof tiles marks the northern entrance to the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges. Louis Bouillot has brought back its glorious past, inviting visitors to immerse themselves in the spirit of the 19th century that saw the creation of the wine house and their Burgundy bubbles.
The visitor trail involves a six-step sound-and-light experience with a high-tech audio headset to lead guests into the universe of Crémant de Bourgogne. This 25-minute visual immersion goes from vine to glass in a discovery that is continued through a tasting of a selection of Crémant de Bourgogne wines.
