We are pleased to announce the second dinnner in thecommunes of Burgundy series - The GRAND CRUS of Gevrey-Chambertin.
Gevrey-Chambertin boasts nine Grand Crus, all of which are red only. The vineyards are almost evenly spread on either side of the Route des Grand Crus at between 260 and 300 metres above sea level.
As is the case right through Burgundy each vineyard has its own style and character and this dinner aims to unravel the differences and similarities between the nine Grand Crus.
Once again we have assembled a selection of wines all with some bottle age and from nine different and respected producers. And the vintages selected are certainly serious.
The dinner presents a great opportunity to taste some very highly regarded wines and compare them to their peers. We will provide tasting and vineyard information to help explain just why these wines, frequently located next door to each other, can taste so different.
With the range of vintages being served the dinner will also show how the Grand Crus of Gevrey-Chambertin develop over the time. It is a terrific opportunity to learn more about this commune of Burgundy.
This dinner will in the lovely Riedel Room at Woodland House. Click here to visit Woodland House's website.
