It’s time for the next session of our Saturday afternoon Burgundy 101 tasting series on the 31st of July. 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. For the April session, we discussed the areas in Burgundy to watch - the “edgy” areas in Burgundy. And for May, our session was dedicated to grands crus vineyards in Burgundy. Then, with the heat of June, we are featuring white Burgundy and exploring why Chardonnay is so very special in expression when grown here.
July sees the return of our earlier session devoted to the village of Gevrey-Chambertin. So many of you wanted to attend back in March that we decided to do a second one. We created this session devoted to discussing Gevrey-Chambertin as for many 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 as we want you to feel safe, relaxed and ready to enjoy wines from a wine region we hold in great esteem – Burgundy.
