MELBOURNE 2011 Burgundy Masterclass and Albert Bichot Dinner. SYDNEY 2011 Burgundy Masterclass a

Melbourne 2011 Burgundy Masterclass

Melbourne Burgundy Lovers - join us for a Masterclass featuring 2011 Burgundy from Albert Bichot and their domaines

 

The new 2011 Burgundy vintage is starting to arrive in Australia. It is a different vintage to anything in the recent past. Stephen Tanzer says "An upside-down growing season that would have been a disaster a generation ago produced perfumed, consistently charming wines that will be relished by long-time Burgundy lovers and neophytes alike. This very good to excellent vintage offers enticing, soil-driven red fruit, floral and mineral flavors; pliant texture; and ripe, smooth tannins. While the overwhelming majority of wines will offer considerable early appeal, they also have the concentration and balance for mid-term aging."

 

Bichot 5 Labels Albert Bichot and their domaines have airfreighted 12 wines from the 2011 vintage. We have a selection from Chablis, the Cote de Beaune and the Cote de Nuits. The white wines have already been bottled but the reds are cask samples specially drawn off for this tasting. The Masterclass will provide the opportunity to taste 12 different 2011's from one of Burgundy's hottest addresses.  

 

For those of you do not know Albert Bichot are one of the movers and shakers of Burgundy. They have won the Red and White Wine Maker of the Year at the International Wine Challenge, also the Wine of the Year at the same awards and Decanter Magazine's Wine of the Year. They are producing a stunning range of Burgundy from most of the finest sites across the Cote d'Or.
