Details

This wine tasting evening will is meant to be a guide of the main white wine appellations in Burgundy, including Meusault, Chassagne, Puligny Montrachet, Chablis, Maconnais, and many others not so well known. We will explore the influence of the soil (hence the 43 different areas of appellation !) as well as the talent of some remarquable wine makers which have given this region its reputation, and made it the land of the most expensive wines on the planet.

Yet as always, the grand cru or 1er cru appellation aren't everything, and sometimes the intervention of emerging talented wine makers enable to transform this chardonnay juice of some lesser well known "cru" into unforgettable nectars at affordable rates (for a club like ours !)

As usual, the price per head will be 20/£. No food will be provided this time as we aim to have it at the River Crescent reception hall (however snacks can be brought by participants), and if the weather is fair we may enjoy sipping those wines along the river terrace…

See you all there..
