Red Wines of the Cote de Beaune

7pm  Monday  September 12, 2016 at The Wine School at l’Alliance Française

Please join Spec’s fine wine buyer Bear Dalton for this in-depth look at the red wines of BURGUNDY’s Cote de Beaune (plus one Cote Chalonnaise). We will examine the intricacies and differences to be found in Pinot Noir based reds in a region with hundreds of legally delimited vineyards split into tiny plots farmed by myriad producers large and small.   We will discuss appellation, heirarchy, terroir, tradition, style, technique, and personality. The wines tasted will be served in Riedel Degustazione stemware. A selection of cheeses and bread will be offered during each class.
