Wine Tasting Classes

Pure Tasting

“Pure Tasting” invites you to (re)discover Burgundy red wines.
From Monday to Friday, at 5 pm, end your afternoon in a relaxed atmosphere for a 2-hour analysis devoted to the emblematic grape variety of our region: pinot noir.
 
Around our tasting table, we first look at all the oenological and viticultural knowledge necessary for a good understanding of Burgundy red wines.
 
Then we discuss the tasting techniques, applied specifically to red wines. The class ends with a blind tasting of 8 red wines: wines from Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise. Beyond the geographical diversity, the selection of wines will let you compare the gustatory complexity between village, premier cru and grand cru appellations.
