The kings of France always served Beaune wines at their tables, taken from their own cellars. They were broad-minded in their tastes, as there are Clos Du Roi (King’s Enclosures) as far afield as Chenôve and Aloxe-Corton. These prestigious enclosures generally came from land confiscated from the Dukes of Burgundy when the province was reunited with France, after the death of Charles The Reckless in the fifteenth century.
