Burgundy is the thing that all wine lovers have to experience. The Côte de Nuits, the Côte de Beaune, Chablis, Côte Chalonnaise: these are the wine regions where it all began. The world’s love affair with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay started in Burgundy centuries ago. The first inkling of Grand Cru wines started here with a handful of Benedictine monks.
In this class, we explore the great Burgundy wines and the essential wine regions. Learn about the key villages and the difference between Grand Cru and Premier Cru wines. Learn about the up and coming regions that our Master Sommeliers are fanatical about.
If we think the class is a bit too stuffy, the instructor may add wines from Alsace, Jura, Savoie, or Champagne to add a touch of spice to the class.
