Description

What explains the dramatic differences between the Pinot Noir wines of the Côte de Beaune and those of the Côte de Nuits? Why is it generally considered that the Côte de Nuits makes better reds and the Côte de Beaune better whites? Invariably this discussion turns to geology. And it seems logical and almost empirical that the answer should be buried somewhere there. But to this day no one can tell us why or how a rock formation defines the wine made from grapes grown in it. We are left, as always, in awe of the range and diversity of Burgundy’s vineyards. In the end, tasting is better than digging as we try to understand the sacred home of Pinot Noir. This tasting pits three Premier Cru Côte de Beaune red vs three from the Côte de Nuits. Erica Archer and Dennis Sherman will guide you in a tasting exploration of six Premier Cru Burgundy Vineyards—three each from the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits. A great session for building both your wine tasting skills and your knowledge of one of the most complex and exciting wine regions in the world.
