Please join us Wednesday, September 26th at 7:00 PM, for a guided wine tasting and dinner featuring the wines of Burgundy. Fresh from a study trip to the region this past June, our head sommelier Alex Bardsley will present tastings of two flights of red Burgundies. The first flight will feature three Premier Cru Volnays from the Côte de Beaune by Domaine Nicolas Rossignol, from three different vintages. The second flight will showcase three wines from Nuits-Saint-Georges in the Côte de Nuits, by three different producers. Dinner will be accompanied by white and red wines from the village of Marsannay, at the northern tip of the Côtes de Nuits. Altogether, the event will highlight both the significant differences in style between two villages such as Volnay and Nuits, which are only about fifteen miles apart, and the subtler differences between vintages and producers, that make the wines of Burgundy so fascinating.
