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 firstname.lastname@example.org or +852 2803 0753 for booking.
In Xavier Horiot you see a calm yet determined man – goal-oriented with a sense of precision. It’s a personality that no doubt served him well as a software engineer, and before that as a fighter pilot in the French Air Force. It took him many years to win control of his family domaine – something many people told him he would not achieve. But he did – after several years in French family court.
In our view the wine world is better off because of his victory. To taste in his cellar is to experience bright, clear wines of specific terroir character. The Burgundy-loving wine community, smart as it is, we are sure will discover the superb quality emanating from Domaine Launay-Horiot and eagerly seek its wines. The domaine includes rare ownership of vines in Côte de Nuits grands crus vineyards Latricières-Chambertin and Chambertin itself. These are as wonderful as you might expect and will help gain him a following. But this is also a Pommard domaine, with some of the very best plots in the village – including a fine collection of 1er Crus. We can’t wait for you to taste them – for us they were a revelation.
So, please join us with Xavier Horiot himself, to learn about this future star domaine.
