For many years I have been trying to introduce you to some of the wines from one of the most prestigious wine regions in the planet, Burgundy. And from one of the most famous wine producers, Maison Louis Latour. Because of their highly regarded status; the wines from this region and producer are exceptionally expensive and worth it. Finally, you will have the opportunity to learn about Burgundy and taste some of their wines representing several sub-regions and exceptionally quality.
Burgundy (Bourgogne in French) is an historic and highly respected wine region in eastern France. Burgundy wines have long had devout followers throughout the world and continue to do so today. Although Bordeaux produces about four times as much wine every year, Burgundy’s estimated 74,000 acres (30,000ha) of vineyards are considered to be of equal importance, producing some of the most exclusive wines on Earth.
- The special wine this month is indeed a very special wine for those of you that will be interested in obtaining it. It is a Premier Cru wine (only second in ranking to the most famous and pricey Grand Cru).The only way I can offer this wine is by assessing an additional charge of $25.00 per bottle (this is still a bargain, wine will retail for $75.00). The wine can be stored for another 10 years.
- The Saturday tasting, this month only, will be from 2 - 4 pm on Saturday May 31st.
