    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!

    ... of the rocky terrain which influence the flavors of the wines. The intense aromas and flavors of the wines we tasted were superb! A Pulingy-Montrachet was my favorite! After Maison Douhrin, the Pere et Fils tastings were anticlimactic but several bottles for tastings were placed on barrels throughout the meandering underground caves on a self-guided tour. A great way to spend an afternoon. ...

    ... of canola. Exactly what I was looking for! And the sun broke through the clouds at just the right time. It feels nice to photograph something new and unseen before, although it kinda does have a standard feel to it, I wonder if bright blue skies would have made it better or worse... After this I was happy and it was jen's turn... A few wineries or caves could be found, and after stopping in what we thought was one but probably more like someone's house, we had a tasting at one that ...

    Things were beginning to get very exciting…….we were heading back to that area where we used to live. In 2004 we bought a house in the Burgundy area of France which we renovated and lived in for just over 2 years. We worked in the vineyards for about 9 months of the year and really enjoyed our french lifestyle.


    First stop on our trip down memory lane was the town of Chalon. We stayed at a great little site on the edge of the ...

    ... 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 ...

    ... it had been raining and there was a lot of water lying on the ice. After a lovely salad for lunch, hot chocolate to warm the kids up and Jura wine for Mum and Dad to taste we strolled round the town. Louis Pasteur was born here but the museum was closed. There were lots of interesting features on the buildings- carved onto them, interesting windows, turrets or staircases and many ...
