The story unfold in northern burgundy. Some scene are shot in the village of Flavigny. Besides its beauty and medieval remains, the village is also renowned for the production of little licorice candies - anis de Flavigny -which have become famous in France and abroad.
Cyrano de Bergerac
Depardieu at his best. Lots of scene shot locally, the final one take place in the Fontenay Abbey - a UNESCO World Heritage site well worth visiting.
Back to Burgundy - Cédric Klapisch (L’Auberge Espagnole)
A fiction filmed close to our properties. Some of our winemaker friends loved it, us not so much. Chacun à son goût. In any case, we all agree on the great rendering of the local landscapes. You’ll find an interesting read on a local winemaker involved in the movie on this site.
