“Angels” in Beaune

An eye-catching name, for sure

An eye-catching name, for sure

Found on the road out of Beaune towards the famous wine area of Nuits St Georges.

We stopped at this sign of a wine cave with such an intriguing name. We all know about the “Angel’s Breath”, that small percentage of wine/alcohol that evaporates during fermentation (and which goes to the angels supposedly), which gives wine cellars their distinctive aroma.

But this name is different: this is the Cave (cellar) of the Guardian Angel. Will their wine guard the sippers we wonder?

Whatever….it’s a lovely name for a really nice place in an amazing part of the world for wine. And we do feel blessed to be here.
