Domaine Armelle et Bernard Rion - Trufficulteurs
Burgundy truffle is a luxury product that appreciates the limestone plateaux that dominate the wine region and truffle beds in the wild areas and undergrowth.
Growing happily among the hazel, hornbeam and black pine, this fragile fungus is harvested from mid-September to late January, which explains its high price.
To hunt out this treasure, there’s no need for high technology, just a specialised dog with an unstoppable flair for sniffing out the musky scent of the fungus.
To share all its secrets, the “Maison des milles truffes et champignons” (House of a Thousand Truffles and Mushrooms), located in the Hautes Côtes de Nuits, has created an entire exhibition and educational tour followed by a tasting of the product.
In autumn, combine wine tasting and truffles at Domaine Rion in Vosne-Romanée, or book a themed weekend’s bed and breakfast at Domaine de la Combotte in Nantoux to visit a truffle farm and explore the subtle combination of Burgundy wines and truffles.
