Burgundy and more attractive South Burgundy is mainly heritage landmarks, grand châteaux like Ducs de Mac Mahon's Sully, named the Burgundy Versailles, roman churches, and vineyards regions, producing the best Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Alligoté and Gamay, sparkling Crémant wines. Including the most acclaimed and famous red wine from Romanée Conti and white wine from Corton Charlemagne, the top of the top, no wine but experience actually.
But in summertime this is no more the posh and classic Beaune city, pearl of Burgundy to lead the orchestra, it's a small down south town at the cross roads of everything, heritage like the photography inventor hometown, Nicéphore Niépce, Les Rousses ski region, fishing rivers, countryside, I named Chalon a best kept secret along the beautiful Saône (pron. soan) river, located south of Dijon and north of Lyon.
A street art festival is taking place there every year around the 19/20th of July, lasting 4 days and for the great pleasure of thousands of tourist families and fairly good popular street artists performing walking down the streets of the historical town.
At nite friends got together in bars and improvised street bistrots, none-the-less food is excellent, meat from Charollais region being known as one of the top list best cows in the world giving the best cheeses too! Here on my pic the famous night meeting hipster spot LES 120.
Although Vin Rosé is not a special of this region, it's okay when temperature is too hot outside, it gets sometimes up to
90F but is normally around 72F then as we drunk it with plates of great homemade saussages and andouillettes with Moutarde de Dijon a waouh snack and then another friend joined the party and decided to offer Dom Ruinart a great Champagne just for the pleasure of it. And so on for the whole night.
