Towns bearing the names of famous Burgundy wines have frequently been on the course of the Tour,  from Pouilly-en-Auxois (1975) to Mâcon (2012) not forgetting Chablis (2007). The most prestigious of all  of them will be honoured in 2017. The wines of Côte de Nuits are considered as being among the best of the planet (Romanée-Conti, La Tâche…). The common has also welcomed two stages of Paris-Nice, won by world class sprinters: Freddy Maertens in 1977, and then Matthew Goss in 2011. The Australian rider  was then to conquer Milan-San Remo a few weeks later
