Anthony Hanson is a Master of Wine, and one of the world’s leading experts and commentators on the wines of Burgundy. He founded Burgundy wine specialists Haynes Hanson & Clark in London in the ‘70s, and written numerous articles on Burgundy, including the Mitchell Beazley book Burgundy. Since 2005 he has been a key player in the Hospices de Beaune wine auctions and market development worldwide.


Between 2004 and 2010 I always turned to Anthony to lead my Burgundy tastings in London, such is his depth of expertise, and his wonderful way at engaging a room.


So I was thrilled when Anthony kindly agreed to share some expertise and insights with us Hong Kong Burgundy lovers on a pretty meaty subject. We like to talk about terroir, but just what exactly does soil and site have to do with the expression of different Burgundies? A humble, but deeply knowledgeable speaker, be ready to engage be engaged, and come away more enlightened on this great subject.
