Burgundy. Its wines are legendary, considered by many to be the greatest on this planet. The two principal grapes of Burgundy are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and, it is argued, they attain their greatest expression in the soils of Burgundy, producing profound wines capable of long ageing.
Sommelier Arnie Millan will guide you through the legendary wines of Burgundy in a two-part class series Sunday, November 13th and November 20th. You will discover the history of Burgundy, its cru system, all the major Côte d’Or villages and the top producers.
The first class (November 13th) will focus on Northern Burgundy, specifically Chablis (not the plonk from California but great, noble Chardonnay), Marsannay and the Côte de Nuits.
The second class (November 20th) will focus on the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâcon. If time permits, the lesson will also cover Beaujolais.
You will taste 6-8 fine wines per class, including grand crus.
