We travel to Burgundy at least once a year in order to bring you the best wines from this region. In 2019, we discovered six domaines that we think are very special and added them to our agency portfolio. Come join me on 26 March to taste and to discover these star domaines that you ought to know: Domaine Heitz-Lochardet, Domaine Paul Pernot, Domaine du Cellier aux Moines, Domaine Christian Clerget, Domaine Laurent Roumier, and Domaine Tortochot.
Our journey will begin in Puligny-Montrachet with the whites of Domaine Paul Pernot. Then, from there, we will head down to Chassagne-Montrachet and also up to Meursault to try the whites of Domaine Heitz-Lochardet. We will begin the reds with their Pommard 1er Cru ‘Rugiens’. Then, from there we will move to Givry in the Côte Chalonnaise to try a wine from Domaine du Cellier aux Moines. From there we will head up to Chambolle-Musigny to try wines from Domaine Christian Clerget and Domaine Laurent Roumier. Finally, we will end in Gevrey-Chambertin with two wines from Domaine Tortochot.
This tasting promises to be an educational journey covering not only a broad spectrum of wines from throughout Burgundy but also a range of winemaking styles. If you are a Burgundy lover this tasting is for you. It will offer you an opportunity to understand the 2017 vintage which offers wines that are already approachable. This vintage is especially good for whites because of its combination of fruity character and vibrant acidity. In addition, you will learn about some domaines you may not know and will be happy you tried. And I promise to finish and to have you off to dinner by 8 p.m. Let’s drink Burgundy together to ring in spring!
