Taste the Bourgogne region’s 33 Grands Crus and uncover the mysteries of the Climats

It’s no mean feat bringing together the Bourgogne region’s 33 Grands Crus wines, some of which are highly prized. This rare opportunity for the most passionate lovers of Bourgogne wines, whether individuals and professionals, will be hosted in English by two experts, one specializing in tasting and the other in geology.

To fully grasp the notion of terroir with regard to the Bourgogne region’s Grands Crus, this learning experience will be structured around several key thrusts:

• Educational sessions with guided tastings at the École des Vins de Bourgogne
• Landscape readings in the legendary plots of Montrachet, Corton, and Romanée Conti
• Meetings with winegrowers and tastings in different estates that produce Grand Cru wines.
