We are thrilled to be able to now launch The Fine Wine Experience Burghound Symposium 2023 programme. This intense, but varied collection of masterclass, walkaround, and dinner events, combine 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 Hong Kong, as well as a number of Burgundy producers, some familiar, some new.
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.
The Fine Wine Experience Burghound Symposium ran in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019, before our March 2020 programme was cancelled due to the arrival of Covid-19. So, we are thrilled to be back in March 2023! We are so looking forward to seeing you at these events!
So too are a number of Burgundy producers who are also flying in to Hong Kong to join us. We look forward to welcoming Antoine & Prune Amiot (Domaine Amiot-Servelle), Didier Amiot (Domaine Didier Amiot), Jean-Luc Pépin (Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé), Christophe Perrot-Minot & Marit Lindal (Domaine Perrot-Minot), Catharina & Guilhem Sadde (Les Horées), Bastian Wolber (Laisse Tomber), and Maxime Ullens (Domaine de Marzilly, Champagne).
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.
with special guests: Antoine & Prune Amiot-Servelle
The Côte de Nuits’ village of 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 have been certified since 2008.
For this dinner we will be fortunate to have with us in Hong Kong Prune Amiot-Servelle and her brother Antoine. They will discuss with us two of their top 1er Crus from Chambolle-Musigny, including 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 two terroirs – 1er Crus ‘Les Amoureuses’ and ‘Les Charmes’.
We are also delighted to welcome Maxime Ullens to Hong Kong, proprietor of Domaine de Marzilly in Champagne’s northern limit. Belgian, and an architect by training, his is a fascinating story, and his Champagne will feature at the beginning of this evening’s dinner.
