Event Description

Alsace - Alsace the anomaly; French with a German accent. Northern, cool climate and yet one of the sunniest and driest of regions. Labels that tell you what grape you’re drinking - how very un-French. 

Alsace is a region of delightful surprises. If you think that you can’t describe wine aromas then you haven’t sniffed Alsatian Gewürztraminer. If you think that all Riesling is sweet then you haven’t tried Riesling from Alsace. If you think Italian Pinot Grigio is as good as it gets then try Pinot Gris from Alsace and if you think all wines from Alsace are white then you have yet to discover Alsace Pinot Noir. Oh, and their fizz is pretty good too.

Burgundy - The grand old Duchy of Burgundy is at the gastronomic heart of France; Bresse chicken, Charolais beef, fine cheese and wines that capture the hearts of wine lovers across the world. 

The very finest wines of Meursault and Gevery-Chambertin may be beyond the pockets of most of us but you can still enjoy a Burgundian experience from the classic grape varieties of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir if you know where to look.

In this tasting we will explain the meaning and importance of “Cru” and show where you might still pick a bargain from up-and-coming communes. 

Just to the south is bucolic Beaujolais, a delightful region where we learn why old is better than new. 

Hosted by your expert wine tutor this two hour tasting will include: at least seven carefully selected wines, full wine notes and accompanying French nibbles.

Note, this evening is part of our four week Tour de France course - book all four evenings and save £20!
