Event Description

More online goodness to keep you well-watered and well-educated all from the comfort of your own front room. 3 weeks of beautiful Burgundy to enjoy with Laura as she shows you the lesser names which provide the region's best kept secrets...

Of course, we all dream of a cellar full of Montrachet and Musigny, a shelf or two of DRC and perhaps cheeky rack of Roumier for those night's when you feel like treating yourself. Sadly, without extensive contacts and an even more extensive bank balance, these wines will remain in the hands of the seriously rich and the seriously dedicated. But fear not! There's plenty of good stuff out there just waiting to be discovered, you just need to wander off the well-worn path, and open your eyes to the delightful and delicious treats lurking behind the headlines. After all, Burgundy isn't just about Chardonnay and Pinot Noir you know!

Wines delivered to your door by our national wine supplier, please ensure that you book nice and early so that your wines arrive in good time. Alternatively, we record all our sessions, so if you do sign up a little late, you can catch up another evening. 

The Wines:

wk 1 Bourgogne Blanc, but not as you know it! Wines tasted- Domaine de Villaine Bourgogne Aligote, Bouzeron 2017 (£24.95), Francois Carillon Bourgogne Blanc, 2017 (£24.25)

wk 2 Marsanny and Maranges, the best Pinot Noir you've never heard of! Wines tasted- Marsanny Rose Domaine Joseph Roty 2015 (£17.75), Maranges 1er La Fuissere Domaine Matrot, 2016 (£30.50)

wk 3 Banging Beaujolais Wines tasted- Beaujolais Blanc Roches Noire Lathuilere Gravallon, 2019 (£13.50), Clos du Moulin A Vent Labruyere, 2017 (£43.95)

That tidy little lot represents at least £155 worth of beautiful wine from Burgundy which will be delivered to your door to enjoy throughout the course. Su's magical recipe cards will be back, along with the usual tasting notes, maps and any other interesting bits and bobs we find along the way...

Online tastings: ideal for stay-at-homers and staycationers alike ;-)
