We have been buying wine from the Jacob family in the village of Echevronne, just north of Beaune, for over thirty years. They make classic red and white Burgundy at affordable prices. Jean-Michel Jacob and his wife Christine will be in the UK for a few days and we have managed to persuade them to take time out of their busy schedule to put on a tasting for us.  They plan to show 11 wines, 4 white and 7 red.  Here is the line-up:- Whites -  Aligoté '17, Hautes Côtes '17 (Oak Casks), Hautes Côtes '17 (Acacia Casks), Savigny-les-Beaune '17; Reds - Hautes Côtes '16, Savigny-les-Beaune '15, Gevrey Chambertin '16, Chambolle Musigny '16, Gevrey Chambertin '14, Savigny Vergelesses 1er Cru '12.

Tutor: Jean-Michel Jacob with Christine Jacob.
