It’s time for the next session of our Saturday afternoon Burgundy 101 tasting series on the 27th of March. That’s right, the last Saturday of each month, we are devoting to Burgundy focused tasting sessions that will include light snacks from our K11 Musea menu. These sessions are designed with both the beginner and experienced wine lover in mind.
Our first session covered some of Burgundy’s key villages and showcased those villages through wines from two rising stars. What you likely noticed is that I skipped – Gevrey-Chambertin – that was on purpose! We created a whole session devoted to discussing Gevrey-Chambertin as for many, like me, it’s their gateway to Burgundy. So, if you’ve been drinking Bordeaux, but are keen to dip your toe in Burgundy, this session will be a good place for you to start. We will cover what it means to be a village level wine, premier cru, and grand cru (Burgundy labels can be confusing) and taste examples of each from some of the best producers in Gevrey-Chambertin. All social distancing regulations will be observed at this intimate tasting as we want you to feel safe, relaxed and ready to enjoy wines from a wine region we hold in great esteem – Burgundy.
