Leaving the vineyards behind, you walk in the shade of the characteristic oak forest. After that on to La Rochepot village and marvel at La Rochepot palace which is definitely worth a visit. From La Rochepot follow the trail to the ancient market town of Nolay.

Once at the top you walk downhill to Santenay village accompanied by marvellous views onto the Saône plain and a glance of the Alps in the distance. Onwards past the ‚Canal du Centre’ and through vineyards to Rully/Chassey le Camp.

Walking through a landscape with lots of hills you return to Beaune. In the course of this you will cross the Canal du Centre in the village of Remigny and walk through the famous vineyards of Chassagne and Puligny Montrachet and then onwards to Meursault.
