Join us for a dinner featuring 14 wines from the 2011 Burgundy Vintage
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."
We have airfreighted a selection of wines from 8 makers to showcase the style and appeal of the 2011 vintage. Some of the wines had already been bottled but others are cask samples drawn off by by the domaine specially for this dinner. They will allow Burgundy lovers to formulate an idea of the 2011 vintage, and to place orders for wines they like at Pre Arrival Prices.
