At best Burgundy (the home of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay) produces some of the most seductive and interesting wines found anywhere in the world. The region, located south of Paris, is one of the most complicated and at times frustrating regions for consumers to understand. The vineyards of Burgundy (in all but a few cases) are split up amongst many different producers which leads to problems in that no matter how good the reputation of the vineyard, producers vary, and two wines from the same vineyard made by different people will not be the same. It is therefore important when buying wine from this part of the world, you know, or know someone who knows, the good producers from the bad. Let Roscoe Halligan and Sebastian Zotti guide you through the ins and outs over two weeks with this in-depth course from the villages level wines to the great premier and grand crus.
It is recommended attendees have completed the PWS French Wine Course or have extensive knowledge of French wine before completing this Burgundy Masterclass. This course assumes a basic understanding of French wine laws and a general understanding of French wine regions.
