    The history of Charlotte and Doctor McMahon

    The castle of Sully is only 20 minutes from Autun on the route to Beaune.
    It's definitely not one of this gorgeous rich "chateau" but quite low key: nevertheless imposing in the nude simplicity of its main Renaissance facade.
    The guided visit of the apartments is a bit limited - they only show you a few rooms on the ground floor of the north Wing - but they give you a lot of background about the castle architectural evolution and the different families that owned it.
    Built in the 12th century by a knight called "...de Sully", it was then bought in the 16th century by the family Sauvan? that is responsible of the additions in Renaissance style, then again passed on to the Morey brothers.
    The youngest (60 years old!!!) of the Morey brothers set out to find a wife to take care of the property and married the 19-years-old Charlotte Le Belin. But, he fell ill just after she moved in with him and the 3 brothers. He died a bit after leaving Charlotte alone living in the castle with the super old!!! brothers. Oddly (or maybe not) she did not go back home and stayed there and eventually she remarried wirh Dctor MacMahon that had cured his husband during his illness. At the death of "the brothers" she inherited everything! The Mac Mahon family has owned the castle since and opened it to the public recently, probably to cover the expenses of this beautiful - but massively expensive to maintain - property!

    ... totally forgotten about the extra course that my meal came with - cheese! Placed in front of me was a rather hefty wedge of semi-soft cheese with a salty rind upon crushed walnuts and little pieces of toasted 'pain d'épices'.

    After eating ALL of that we got on to dessert. I had a massive crème brûlée and Alyssa had some pain d'épices and ice cream.

    Armistice day, fog, and winter.

    ... as was the wine. We asked for a digestif after our meal, and were given a distilled wine with an alcohol percentage of 45. It smelled and tasted like scotch, but tasted like grapes and honey. AS2, or other interested Samms, if you come to France ever, you'll have to try this! Apparently it's unique to the Bourgogne region.

    ... lady leaves.

    The French couple finish their Almond tart and tea, pay their bill and leave.

    It would appear, the rule of thumb is, only one couple can be eating their main course at once.

    The two Dutch (?) ladies are served with their Gallettes.

    We finish our wine.

    Kathleen decides, she will "go to the ladies". ...

    I got to see more of Beaune today, it is a very cute little town with many small parks a beautiful river. Discovered a lot of small hikes with really good views of the vineyards. The high light of today would have to be the wine tour, we got into a van and a lovely lady took us through all the vine growing ...

    ... winemaker with a great wine-making passion, was able to buy some of the finest grapes in Burgundy to make his first wines. He named his establishment Maison Ilan. He owns no land; he just wants to buy the finest grapes and make great wines. He uses ancient traditions for making wine; much of the work done by hand. His wines are too pricy for us but we enjoyed learning about how he broke into the ...
