If any town can claim to be born under the auspices of a guiding star, Beaune can. The star, seen on numerous paintings and embroideries at the Hôtel-Dieu, represents the love between Beaune's two founders, Nicolas Rolin and his wife Guigone de Salins. Encircled by its ramparts and bastions, Beaune is a flamboyant gothic representation of this love story between these families of Burgundy and Flanders.

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.
