Burgundy Wine Therapy | Sessions 1-3
As we approach the end of the year, we have been racking our brains for how best to replicate the January Burgundy En Primeur tastings (we normally host at least three) due to the ongoing restrictions caused by the pandemic. We have come up with a solution that will allow Burgundy fans from the obsessed to the mildly curious to sample along with us ‘virtually’ a special selection of some of our favourite wines from core growers.
It just isn’t practical to get barrel samples of 2019 so the selection is from Tom’s “Burgundy Matrix”, of key wines that are already on the market but from vintages that bare a strong resemblance to the 2019 offerings that Tom was able to sample.
We’ve drawn up a short list of 18 wines split in to three packs of 6 wines in 50ml tubes that we will sample over 3 separate evenings to attempt to encapsulate the breadth and diversity that our small but will formed list of Burgundy 2019 wines can offer. Each wine also has a “premium” and “value” recommendation alongside to enable you to tailor your subsequent en primeur purchases according to budget and taste.
We have priced these packs as near to cost as possible in order to offer the best value possible and encourage as many of you as possible to join us. As a further incentive we are offering a discounted rate of £160 inc vat to have all 3 packs delivered at the same time (a 17% discount). If you are unable to make the tasting dates then the sessions will be recorded as usual and you can taste along to the commentary at your leisure.
Trailblazers: 6.30-7.30pm Thurs 7th Jan, 2021
Stalwarts: 6.30-7.30pm Tues 12th Jan, 2021
Challengers: 6.30-7.30pm Thurs 15th Jan, 2021
(Can’t make it on the day? Don’t worry, each Session will be uploaded onto YouTube for you to taste along with at your own leisure.)
