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 email@example.com or +852 2803 0753 for booking.

White Burgundy: Best of the Best Lunch with Allen Meadows (2015)
An indisputable superstar producer of great white Burgundies Jean-Francois Coche and his son Raphaël produce some of the most pure, intense and distinctive fine wines in the world. They are highly coveted, and so scarce that side by side comparisons, terroir by terroir like this evening’s selection, are very rare indeed. To tighten those comparisons as much as possible, we have selected just two mature vintages – 2002 and 2007 – to represent each of 6 climats, from Meursault village, through 4 Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet 1er crus, through to the exalted Corton-Charlemagne.
Why are they so special? Allen Meadows will lead us through each pair this evening. After 12 examples of Domaine Coche-Dury we will leave this evening with a clear sense of the domaine and its wines.
