The appellation

If any town can claim to be born under the auspices of a guiding star, Beaune can. The star, seen on numerous paintings or embroideries at the Hôtel-Dieu, is the love between its two founders, Nicolas Rolin and his wife Guigone de Salins. Encircled by its ramparts and bastions like a cask by its staves, Beaune is a flamboyant gothic representation of a love story between Burgundy and Flanders, in the days of the Order of the Golden Fleece.
