North of Beaune, on the way to Dijon, is the quaint town of Nuits Saint Georges, and the vineyards of the Cotes de Nuits.
We walked along a 5km loop from the town through vineyards that are just showing their spring foliage. Being a weekday there were many workers tending the vines - weeding mainly.
Some fine public art can be found in the town centre. I think I know the model for this statue.
There are many villages and chateaux between Nuit Saint Georges and Beaune. This is the Chateau de Corton-Andre which has towers, a flash roof and a rather appealing front door.
