Burgundy Wine Tasting


*Burgundy Wine Tasting
*Friday March 6th 
*7:45pm – 10pm - £15 per person

*Following on from our Rhone Valley Wine Tasting,  this coming Friday we
shall be hosting a cheeky little evening focusing on the picturesque region
of Burgundy. Stretching from Dijon down to Lyon, for many this region is
the spiritual home of two very significant grape varieties, Pinot Noir &
Chardonnay.

We will be looking closely at some top examples of these elegant grape
varieties and the wines of one of Burgundies top Domaines, Louis Jadot.
Dating back to the early 1800′s and with a stunning portfolio from some
very prestigious appellations in the region, this should be a great insight
into the style and history of the region.*

*Burgundy has a higher number of appellations d’origine contrôlée (AOCs)
than any other French region, and is often seen as the most
terroir-conscious of the French wine regions. The various Burgundy AOCs are
classified from carefully delineated Grand Cru vineyards down to more
non-specific regional appellations. The practice of delineating vineyards
by their terroir in Burgundy goes back to medieval times, when various
monasteries played a key role in developing the Burgundy wine industry.
