Wine Tasting Experience

A WINE TASTING EXPERIENCE TO UNDERSTAND AND APPRECIATE BURGUNDY WINES 

Sensation Vin offers, with its “Wine Tasting Experience”, an in-depth discovery of Burgundy wines.
 
First, we look at the key aspects of oenology before starting on tasting methodology through tasting exercises. The first exercise is about flavours: you taste some water to dissociate acidity, bitterness, astringency…The second exercise is about aromas: 20 dark bottles to smell and find what is inside…thanks to your memory.
As conclusion, these exercises will enable you to disassociate flavours and aromas, to discuss your sensations and to interpret them.
 
Then we move on to a blind tasting during which you will compare 10 wines produced exclusively in the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits. You will taste 5 whites and 5 reds, village, 1er cru and grand cru appellations.
