Please join David Black on Thursday, April 4th at a very special seminar and tasting of France's great Burgundy wines. This is the first Burgundy tasting done at The Wine Room. For various reasons Burgundy is the most complex and confusing of all the world's great wines regions. There are so many small vineyards and innumerable proprietors. The average amount of acreage that a proprietor owns is only about ten, and his holdings might well be scattered over five or six different vineyards! And then there is the further difficulty of Burgundy rankings: Village Level, Premier Cru & Grand Cru. When you then add to the equation the fact that on average there are only about three great vintages out of every ten, the situation becomes even more complex. This inconsistency of vintages is due of course to the vicissitudes of weather in north central France where Burgundy is located.
However, when the vintage is right and the vineyard special and you have a perfectionist proprietor who owns, tends his Pinot Noir vines and makes his own wine, the result is stunning. I am in the process of choosing just the right Burgundies for our seminar from the renowned Cote d' Or (Hills of Gold). In the next few days I will e-mail all of you the specific wines being tasted so that, if you want, you can do some research on your own before a week from Thursday evening.
Space is as always very limited, so please reserve your places by e-mailing me along with your credit card information. Thank you and I hope to see you on April 4th.
