Who is ready for a taste-off between Region & Village-level White & Red Burgundy?
Elevating this week's tasting flight, we are featuring all 2020 Vintage Burgundy from Xavier Monnot, a leading Meursault winemaker that is known for a style that emphasizes purity of fruit, elegance, and complexity. And let's face it, have you ever had something less than stellar from Meursault?
So here is your chance to learn if you can discern the premiums associated with Villages-level or the more value-oriented regional or, Bourgogne-level.
My belief is that one's favorite producer for Bourgogne-level is on point for weeknights, while you might reach for the Villages labels as you dip into your weekend wine glass.
The tasting flight starts tomorrow at both locations and I think you will surprised with the Bourgogne Blanc and Bourgogne Rouge... both really tough to beat, when you consider the quality for the money when it comes to Burgundy.
The Villages wines will show the attractiveness of the town of Monthelie and finish with a true monopole vineyard bottling, Clos de la Fussière. The lineup really will be a whole lot of fun on the palate. And just know, Burgundy is THE hottest category in the world of wine - so if you haven't gotten on the bandwagon, don't be the last to get on board. It's very simple, we're only talking french Chard and Pinot here...
Read on for this week's fabulous line-up, along with a quick primer on Xavier Monnot, plus, back by popular demand, some easy food pairings to consider for you foodies out there.
And last but not least, I invite you to check-out our "The Day After: 2/1 Above the Uptown Skyline" event that was just announced last night... tickets are selling fast, and I wouldn't want you, our newsletter subscribers, to miss out. I expect the 65+ remaining tickets to sell out this week. See below for details!
See you soon in the tasting room and drink more white AND red Burg!
