We are thrilled to be able to now launch for sale our 2018 Allen Meadows Burghound Symposium. 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 will fly leading Burgundy critic and writer Allen Meadows (and “Mrs. Burghound" too!) to Shanghai and Hong Kong to lead all of the events in this programme.
Allen Meadow’s 2018 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 Shanghai and Hong Kong dining venues. 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 we are joined by leading Burgundians — Marit Lindal and Christophe Perrot-Minot (Domaine Perrot-Minot), and Prune and Antoine Amiot-Servelle (Domaine Amiot-Servelle) who will join Allen in leading their domaine-specific events.
The headline summary of events is listed below. Download the full programme with wine list and details or read it online here.
Many of these events are very small in scale, so we recommend you book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
For Hong Kong we also offer special hotel rate Deluxe Peak View Room at Island Shangri-la Hotel for HKD 2,550+10% service charge per night. This offer is subject to availability and only valid for bookings made through The Fine Wine Experience for the participants of Burghound Symposium 2018 events, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org or +852 2803 0753 for booking.

The Côte de Nuits’ Chambolle-Musigny produces wines often described as having finesse, delicacy, charm, and subtlety. Yet, within this framework – one that distinguishes it from neighbouring villages – are differences that are rewarding to know for the Burgundy enthusiast.
After gaining her diploma in oenology, daughter Prune began working at the domaine in 2011. Domaine Amiot-Servelle was established in 1989 through the marriage of Christian Amiot and Elisabeth Servelle. As Chambolle-Musigny specialists, they have won high praise for their sensitive approach to representing its terroirs, following no recipe but adapting closely to the conditions of each vintage, and each vineyard specifically. Some whole clusters are used but only where warranted and for the proportion that works. They have farmed organically since 2003 and been certified since 2008.
For this masterclass we will be fortunate to have with us in Hong Kong Prune Amiot-Servelle and her brother Antoine who has also joined the domaine, who together with Allen Meadows will take us through four different Chambolle-Musigny 1er Crus climats. The selection includes one of the greatest vineyards in all of Burgundy – Les Amoureuses. Taking a close look at these vineyards through the lens of just one producer, but in two contrasting vintages will give us the chance to really hone in on the similarities and differences of these four terroirs.
