Later in September on the 12/09/12, I will be lecturing about Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Burgundy. A tasting of quite rare and famous wines from outstanding producers. This will happen in Kokkola, Finland, at Olivette Wine Bar.
The wines to be tasted will be from Domaine des Lambrays, a fine estate that holds the Clos Des Lambrays, one of the four Grands Crus of Morey-Saint-Denis. It is well known for its classical Burgundy wines and its reputation is on the rise over the past years. There will also be wines from the Domaine Ramonet. Noël Ramonet is a prominent producer of the Côte de Beaune (50 km in South of Morey) based in Chassagne-Montrachet. The quality of his wine is as great as the difficulty to get some. They will be accompanied by Domaine de la Bongran which is maybe one of the greatest artist of the Chardonnay. Finally you will be tasting a wine from Samuel-Billaud, a rising star of Chablis.
The underlying theme of the tasting is for the white wines: tasting Chardonnay from the three major parts of Burgundy (Chablis, Côte de Beaune and Mâconnais) and for the right, trying to understand the difference between Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune as well as between a village appellation and a first growth. A big and interesting program that should extend over two hours.
For more detail and registration, you can contact: Virpi Sorvisto at Olivette Wine Bar, firstname.lastname@example.org before the 11/09. Only 20 seats available!
