A 19th century house and its vineyard
amidst plots of land classified as World Heritage sites by Unesco
, COTE-D'OR burgundy FR

Location

This estate, between Beaune and Nuits-Saint-Georges, is 3 hours from Paris, 2¼ hours from Geneva and near to all shops.
It stands in a village set in the heart of the Burgundy wine-growing area, classified as a World Heritage Site by Unesco. Its plot of land comprises a reddish brown soil, comprising lots of siliceous particles as well as limestone and flint detritus, with loose earth, rich in both potash and phosphoric acid. The AOC wine produced in this area is one of the most renowned of the Côte d'Or vintages.

Description

This property comprises a late 19th century, middle-class house surrounded by a vineyard, spanning 4,683 m² and producing wine under the Aloxe-Corton appellation. It also has a fermenting room, previously used as a place for tasting the property’s wine. Some years ago, the main house was a 3 star hotel. This property also includes a swimming pool. The vineyard produces good quality wines that are smooth with a strong character and/or balanced and complex. The secondary road passing in front of the estate is a commercial asset. A large carpark makes it easy to reach the building from the main road going from Dijon to Beaune. The vineyard stretches out behind the property for as far as the eye can see.

The middle-class house

This house was most probably built at the end of the 19th century, or perhaps at the very beginning of the 20th century. It has undergone some more recent transformations, with notably the addition of a glazed extension on the facade, forming a restaurant. A wing behind the house comprises a few of the bedrooms of the former hotel. This building has rendered walls, topped with interlocking tiles, following contemporary renovation works, and flat tiles which although older are in a good state of repair. It spans two levels above a basement. The ground floor is accessed via a large reception hall and via a door opening on to the main street. There are other doors around the back.


Basement
This level comprises a confusion of rooms, one of which was a kitchen. Only technical features currently remain on this level which no doubt once housed the refrigerators.
Ground floor
The main entrance door opens into the former hotel’s reception area which provides access to two lounges. One of which is old with parquet flooring and a 19th century fireplace whilst the other, which could become a dining room, is a more recent conversion. The second lounge communicates with the old kitchens, with white tiles but no current fixtures and fittings. Also on the ground floor are a cloakroom and access to several bedrooms.
First floor
A vestibule provides access to the ten bedrooms of the former hotel, with their bathrooms, shower rooms and toilets. Despite contemporary renovation works which added a few touches of modernity, this level is in need of attention.

The fermenting room

The architecture of this building makes it modern, but it is not suitable as a contemporary fermenting room. It comprises two large rooms which both open on to an inner courtyard. It was used more as a tasting room and storeroom.

The extension

Extending the main building, this extension is of a modern design and forms an L-shape with the fermenting room. Two levels of living space in this section house the other four bedrooms of the former hotel. They were renovated at the same time as the main building.

The AOC vineyard

The vineyard, set out around the main house, spans 0.4689 ha.

Our opinion

The vineyard, with its Aloxe-Corton appellation, is this property’s main asset. But if tastefully revamped, the middle-class house could come back to life and once again become a convivial place with a restaurant, a cellar, a shop selling regional specialities and/or a hotel where the pleasures of life take precedence. Several of these activities could be combined. The proximity of a road, much used by tourists, is, in this respect, another major asset. Unless of course some Burgundy enthusiasts quite simply make it their home.
