This stage is not signposted. It goes along small roads through vineyards located between slopes and plain. Take care leaving Dijon via Chenôve; from Dijon’s port, take Rue de Chenôve (using the marked cycle tracks), turn right up Rue Salengro for the Pressoirs des Ducs de Bourgogne, then find the small Rue Pierre Curie (marked with the GR hiking sign) to get to Marsannay and its vines. The stage may be provisional and unofficial, but it is fairly easy.
