Burgundy is often considered the region that delivers the quintessential expression of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir… in all their multi-faceted dimensions. Can terroir impact taste? Is wine truly made in the vineyard?
Discover how the vineyard variables of aspect, elevation, and soil impact a wine’s structure, vineyard rankings and flavor profiles.
Burgundy consists of five distinct regions and two noble grapes. Within this world, Burgundy has established a patchwork quilt of 100 AOCs midst a philosophy of differentiation that began back when the monastic orders first focused their discipline and erudition on farming a fractured soil. Burgundy is not complicated; it is complex. Learn why Burgundy’s vineyards are ranked the way they are and how this hierarchy manifests itself on the wine label. Hone your palates on wines of subtlety and finesse…and find out for yourself why great Burgundy is often referred to as the ‘holy grail’. Join us as we taste 8 wines during the event.
