TVC starts a new year by sampling the 2010 vintage with red wines from the Côte d’Or (Burgundy). 2010 wines have intensity and structure, are balanced and fresh, have lower alcohol levels than the ‘09s, and the best will be long-lived. We feature 3 Gevrey Chambertins (Côte de Nuits), 3 Volnays (Côte de Beaune) and 2 Beaune wines (Côte de Beaune). Gevrey-Chambertin, which produces some of the world's most prestigious and expensive red wines, are intense in colour, aroma, flavor, and are long lived. Volnay is renowned for producing some of the smoothest, most delicate Pinot Noir wines of the southern Côte d'Or. Within Beaune, there are small differences depending on the exact location.
The event price includes a reception wine, bread, appetizers and of course, our main wines. Our guest speaker will be David Jarvis, Grand Chambellan at the Confrérie des Chevalier du Tastevin, an exclusive bacchanalian fraternity of Burgundy wine enthusiasts headquartered in the Côte d’Or. David will share his wealth of Burgundy knowledge and expertise with us. This will be a great evening!
