Burghound Symposium: Masterclass 2 - Vosne-Romanée 1er cru

Date: 23rd April 2016
Time: 4 PM - 5:45 PM
Venue: Atrium Room (39/F, Island Shangri-la Hotel, Pacific Place, Hong Kong)
Price: $2,880 per person

Vosne-Romanée is Burgundy’s most famous, most celebrated village – The Pearl in the Côte. Much of this fame derives is dazzling array of grands crus, such as Romanée-Conti, La Romanée, La Tâche, Richebourg and Romanée-St-Vivant, and the exemplary quality and lead rank of domaines such as DRC, Liger-Belair and Leroy.

 

Allen Meadow’s authoritative book The Pearl of the Côte, explains in great detail the characteristics and virtues of these grands crus. Yet rightly, and perhaps for the first time in such detail, much attention is lavished on the characteristics and virtues of Vosne’s 1er Crus.

 

We are no doubt in a time of elevated interest, and with it elevated prices for the illustrious Vosne-Romanée wines. Yet, it seems clear too that we have never been in a period of higher quality than today. Vosne-Romanée is represented by an exceptional collection of very high performing domaines. The past decade has been truly exceptional in this regard.

 

This masterclass is ideal for novice and expert alike. For the novice we offer here a comprehensive masterclass covering all of Vosne-Romanée’s premier crus, tutored by the world’s leading expert on the subject. And for the already experienced taster, here is your chance to not only pinpoint the character of the famous, more widely available ones such as Malconsorts and Suchots, but to understand too the lesser known ones, La Croix Rameu, and Les Rouges, for example.
