WINE CLASS WITH A BLIND TASTING OF 8 BURGUNDY WINES

 
New program for our tasting "The Essentials".
In the morning instead of in the afternoon, 8 wines instead of 7, 2 grands crus instead of only 1…
 
From Monday to Friday, at 11am, enjoy a wine tasting class lasting 1 ½ hours.
“The Essentials” offers you an excellent introduction to Burgundy wines. This wine tasting class will enable you to make the most of the vinous discoveries that will certainly mark your stay in Burgundy and to put into practice your tasting techniques.
 
Around one of our two tasting tables, we will look at « the essentials » of the oenological and viticultural knowledge necessary for an understanding of Burgundy and its prestigious wines: the geography of the vineyards, the hierarchy of the appellations, geology and soil, grape varieties… We will reply to your questions: why are the wines different even though they are made from neighbouring parcels of land? Why do we find the 1er and grand cru wines in the middle of the slopes? Etc…
 
Next, it’s time to taste. We begin with an initiation in the techniques of tasting, then a blind tasting of 8 wines, 2 of them are "grand cru" and all chosen from the four levels of appellations in Burgundy (whites and reds). To give you a wide overview of the wine region, we have selected wines from estates in the different Burgundian wine growing areas, from Chablis to Mâcon, including Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise.
