While I try not to schedule two wine events in one week, sometimes things just work out that way. This week I have two events scheduled and both are exceptional.
The first, on Monday night (2/29/16) at 7pm, is an advanced Burgundy class in which we will look at the fine differences that small changes in the myriad variables of terroir, grape growing, and winemaking can make in Burgundy. Within it’s 14 wines, Taking Burgundy to the Next Level will showcase the difference terroir makes with the variables in winemaking controlled and the differences in winemaking with terroir controlled. For more information including the full list of exceptional Burgundy wines to be tasted, please go to Taking Burgundy to the Next Level
The second, on Wednesday night (3/2/16) at 7pm, a Ch. Ducru Beaucaillou – Vieux Chateau Certan Dinner at Brennan’s offers a chance to hear about two of Bordeaux’s top chateaux from the owner – motive force behind each – Bruno Borie of Ch. Ducru Beaucaillou (St. Julien) and Alexander Thienpont of Vieux Chateau Certan (Pomerol) – while drinking fine mature vintages of each. For more information including the menu and vintages to be served, please go to a Ch. Ducru Beaucaillou – Vieux Chateau Certan Dinner.
Between the two, this promises to be a great week in wine.
