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.
This course is broken down into two sessions, the first dealing with the white wines of Chablis and the Cotes de Beaune. Part two deals with the red wines of the Cote de Nuits and the Cotes de Beaune.
Customers will gain a deep understanding of the styles and quality of the wines of Burgundy through detailed comparative tastings across all quality levels from basic Burgundy through to the top Grand Cru vineyards.
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.
