We have so many different wines in Burgundy that the quantity of themes is inexhaustible. We will regularly give you some suggestions. Let’s start with the first one, dedicated to the white wines of Burgundy.

Have a 2-hour break to (re)discover the white wines of our region. You will taste 8 wines, all blind, all produced with chardonnay grape. The tasting is blind not to be influenced by the label or a prestigious appellation. You will taste the wine for the wine. You will discover wines coming from Chablisien, Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune, Côte Chalonnaise and Mâconnais. Little by little you compare the wines, perceive the nuances between them, understand what you like or what you dislike.

The wine class starts with theory to get the essential notions for a good understanding of Burgundy white wines: geography, grape varieties, the hierarchy of AOC, reading the labels...
Then we take time to explain the tasting methodology for white wines. After describing the specific color, aromas and tasting harmony for white wines, we start the blind tasting.
