While many associate Beaujolais with its main export – Beaujolais Nouveau – these wines are not the best of the region. In fact, they are a far cry from it.

The best of Beaujolais lies in Cru Beaujolais, the upper vineyards of the region that sit on granite, creating wines of depth, breadth, and soaring beauty to rival anything else that Burgundy has to offer.

This tasting will showcase the best of the best from each Beaujolais Cru. We will explore the region’s rightful station of producing world-class wines.

Nothing is quite like white Burgundy – the elegance, structure and longevity of a red wine, with the refreshment, energy and richness of a white.

Yet for how wonderful it is, white Burgundy can be a bit of a mystery – what is the grape (it’s not on the label); what do all those different and funny French names mean (and why are there so many of them?); is it oaked;  or unoaked?  And, why do white Burgundies taste so different from each other?

At this tasting, we offer a thorough and exciting tour through some of the great wines (and great values) of white Burgundy!
