Event Description

Time to dive once more into Laura's fabled 'stash' of fine wine as we compare and contrast two giants of the French wine scene... Bordeaux vs Bourgogne! A look at these regions from a historical, philosphical and (most important) vinous point of view.

You find in life that people are either Bordeaux or Bourgogne lovers, rarely both. It's one of those existential questions like Oasis or Blur, Eastenders or Corrie, Nintendo or Sega?

Today we will unpack this incredibly decdent question in all of it's delicious possibilities. We'll consider whether the wine is made in the vineyard (Bourgogne) or in the winery (Bordeaux)? We'll ponder the notion of one grape to express many terroir (Bourgogne) or complexity expressed through the blend (Bordeaux)? We'll talk through the role of religion and tradition (Bourgogne) vs progress and global trade (Bordeaux). 

Much to taste, much to talk through, and many ideas to be swapped. It should be a great day and I can't wait to share it with you
