Dinners and Tastings

Postponed: The Premier Cru Vineyards of Volnay 2019 Dinner. Thursday 20 January 2022 at Vesper. $259.00 per Person
20/01/2022 7:30 pm

Taste and compare 12 Different Volnay Premier Crus from the 2019 vintage!

 

Volnay has become the go-to commune for high quality Premier Crus at reasonable prices.


It boasts some 29 Premier Crus that range from light and perfumed to (relatively) rich and powerful. The two things the wines all share is an aromatic nose and a refined palate. This makes Volnay easy to enjoy in its youth and the inherent balance allows the wines to be long lived. 


We import four Volnay producers each with their own style and range of vineyards.


We have assembed 12 wines from these four producers for our first dinner of 2022. All of the wines are from the great 2019 vintage.


The opportunity to taste and compare 12 different Premier Crus from the same vintage is quite special. We will arrange the wines into 4 brackets each comprising 3 wines.


For students of Burgundy this will be an educational exercise. For those who enjoy drinking fine wine this will be a delightful dinner.
