Central France houses Burgundy, a wine region locked in any wine aficionados heart. It is steeped in tradition and home to classic grape varieties such as Chardonnay, Gamay and the expressive Pinot Noir. Within the undulating hills of Côte d’Or, from villages such as Gevrey-Chambertin and Puligny-Montrachet, we find the famous expressions of the classic grape varieties, and wines to die for. Also we shall explore the up-and-coming Côte Chalonnaise, the delicate wines from the Maconnais and the steely and mineral Chablis and the fruit-driven and simple wines from Beaujolais. A delightful region to taste your way through.
In addition to the diversity we find in this esteemed region, there are different levels of quality from lighter regional wines to Cru wines - an aspect to be discovered on this great tasting.
All tastings include; minimum of 6 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, full tasting notes, tasting sheet, use of professional tastings glasses.
