Local Event Premier Host
Simply put, White Burgundy is Chardonnay and Red Burgundy is Pinot Noir. Still, for many, there is a sense of mystery concerning Burgundy, a.k.a. ‘Bourgogne’; intimidation even. For others, there is that special, elusive, individuality which is . . . Burgundy! Those who ‘get it’ can become obsessed with it. For the rest of us, there can be misperception or frustration. Led by Plum’s Rod Johnson, we will deconstruct Burgundy for you and, thereby, unlock all of its ‘mysteries’. We will visit all its regions: Chablis, Côte d’Or (both Nuits and Beaune), Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais and present a range of wines, both red and white, from regional all the way up to Grand Cru! "What?" You say you can’t find value-based Burgundy? No worries! We have discovered quite a few and will offer many for your tasting pleasure. Fine producers whose wines that may appear include - Domaine Arnoux, Domaine Matrot, Domaine Jean Chartron, Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot, Domain Fabrice Larochette, Domaine Fourrey, Domaine Raymond Dupont-Fahn, Domaine des Perdrix, Château Chamirey, Domaine Collotte and Vincent Girardin. What a rare treat!
