Do you wonder why sometimes you drink one Pinot Noir from Burgundy, and love it, and when you try another, it completely underwhelms you? While Burgundy is one of the most terroir specific wine regions in the world, there is a broad range of producer styles that dictate the character of the finished wine. Let's talk Burgundy winemakers, and the techniques they’re known for. Do you prefer whole cluster, or destemmed? A high percentage of oak character, or none? Maybe you like your Chardonnay without any battonage. In this class, we'll explore the stylistic differences that producers use to shape these wines from just two grape varieties. You'll taste 6 wines that exemplify the top examples in each category. You'll discuss the differences between producers like Roulot & Ramonet, Dujac & Jayer, and more.
