You may have heard – the locals have mentioned it once or twice – that France knows a couple of things about wine. Particularly in autumn, when it starts releasing new bottles of delight. NuitsSaint-Georges, a compelling example of the Burgundy region being very, very good at pinot noir, is a case in point. It will salute itself in a fortnight’s time via its yearly Fête du Vin Bourru, in the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges near Dijon (Oct 27-28; association-la-cabotte.com/vin-bourru). Tastings? Yes. Lots.
