BURGHOUND SYMPOSIUM

Burghound Symposium

We are thrilled to be able to now launch our Burghound Symposium 2019 programme. This intense, but varied collection of masterclasses and dinner events, combines fun with the chance to gain or to deepen your understanding of Burgundy. We are flying leading Burgundy critic and writer Allen Meadows (and “Mrs. Burghound" too!) to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong to lead events in this programme.

Allen Meadow’s 2019 China programme is exclusive to The Fine Wine Experience.

There is much to learn about this complex yet rewarding fine wine region of Burgundy. Allen’s expertise, his complete fluency in the subject, and his ability to teach, to lead, and to moderate discussion offer much to both the novice and the experienced aficionado.

We have also spent many months meticulously sourcing just the right bottles – the right vineyards, vintages, and domaines with the right provenance – to show top level Burgundy in its diversity and depth.

Hedonism and learning combined! 

The programme takes in a range of subjects with a nicely varied selection of cuisines at leading dining venues in three cities. Yet all this is scheduled within a short enough space of time, that both locals and international guests alike can schedule any selection of events, or indeed the entire programme into their diaries.
 
This year Edouard Parinet of Château du Moulin-à-Vent and Jean-Luc Pépin of Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé who will join us to host their domaine-specific events.

Many of these events are very small in scale, so we recommend you book as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Act now and contact us via events@finewineexperience.com or +852 2803 0753 for booking.

2019 BURGHOUND SYMPOSIUM HONG KONG: MASTERCLASS LUNCHEON: Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé, 2014 & 2002 with special guests: Jean-Luc Pépin and Allen Meadows

One of the finest and most ancient domaines in Burgundy, emblematic of the noble finesse of Chambolle-Musigny, the domaine is the largest owner of Musigny Grand Cru. From this vineyard they produce 3 wines – the red Musigny Grand Cru Cuvée Vieilles Vignes, their Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru (Musigny from young vines), and Musigny Blanc. Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru, Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses 1er Cru, and Chambolle-Musigny (a villages-level label that includes some 1er Cru Baudes and Fuées) complete the unrivaled Chambolle-Musigny collection.

This domaine is unique in its long history, tracing its beginnings to the 15th century with ownership passing through 20 generations to the present proprietors. In 1925, it was inherited by Comte Georges de Vogüé, who ran the domaine for 52 years, and is now owned by his granddaughters, Claire de Causans and Marie de Ladoucette. It is managed by Eric de Bourgogne (vineyard), François Millet (winemaking), and Jean-Luc Pépin (commercial & administration). 

During today’s lunch, Jean-Luc and Allen will put the spotlight on four wines in two vintages – the rare and coveted Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru ‘Les Amoureuses’, Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru, and the two cuvées coming exclusively from the Musigny grand cru vineyard – Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru (young vines), and Musigny (old vines).
