“I would happily die with White Burgundy in my mouth.”  — Julia Child  

So would we.

Lots of wine regions around the world make lots of delicious Chardonnay, but none can match the character, the quality and the variety of Chardonnay from Burgundy.

Most of the best White Burgundy is made in the Côte d’ Or, which translates literally to Golden Slope, a limestone escarpment about 65 kilometers long and two kilometers wide that stretches south from Dijon as far as the river Dheune. The characteristics of Chardonnay from Burgundy vary dramatically from one of the region’s appellations to the next — from the Kimmeridgean clay soils of Chablis in the north, to the exalted vineyards of the Côte de Beaune and the Corton hill, to the honest, simple styles of the Mâconnais in the south. And each of these Chardonnays from each of these Burgundy appellations offer us an ideal opportunity to study, to explore, to taste the spellbinding properties of terroir — the effects of soil, topography, climate and culture on a glass of wine.

Our White Burgundy tasting travels through the culture, history and vineyards of the Chardonnays of Burgundy. We’ll taste more than 10 classic wines from 10 exemplary estates in 10 legendary appellations. We’ll show you how easy, delicious and rewarding White Burgundy can be, and why great White Burgundy has been sought after for hundreds of years. 

You’ll discover for yourself why one of life’s greatest joys is White Burgundy.
