    Tasting at Mon Millesime

    More
    4 years 6 months ago #118 by Felix Choi
    Happy New Year to you all,

    I was wondering if anyone will be in Beaune on June 7 and is interested in having a tasting at Mon Millesime, a specialist in old vintages (see below)

    www.monmillesime.com/

    For 120 Euro, we'll get to taste wines 30 to 40 years old from some of the top appellations. I'll need three more people for this tasting due to the cost of opening old wines which will not keep beyond the tasting. (see the link below for details, scroll down to section "Vintage Experience Tour"

    www.burgundydiscovery.com/our-tours/daily-tours/

    I have confirmed with Lauriann form Greene-Terroir that we will be mostly like tasting recent wines as wineries don’t necessarily have old vintages in stock. Please let me know if you are interested, or if you have better idea. My email is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

    Hi Felix,

    I would probably be interested if we can get the requisite minimum of 4 people. Two questions:
    1) Can we do this "standalone" ? (The website says, of this tasting, "when COMBINED with our Grand Premier tour or our Gourmet Grand Premier tour". CAPS are mine, to clarify my question.)
    2) Would it be offered on June 7, this being over the Pentecost weekend, when I think lots of folks take holiday?

    Best,
    Paul

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for the reply. Answer to your questions. Yes, I've confirmed with Burgundy Discovery that Mon Millesime opens Saturday, June 7 and we can do just the tasting part without the tour. I realized it might be difficult to find another 3 people to do the tasting, so I went ahead making reservations to visit some of the negociants in Beaune. Here is my itinerary for June 7:

    10:00 am - Maison Louis Jadot, tour of the winery followed by a tasting, cost: free. Address: 62, Route de Savigny, Beaune
    2:30 pm - Joseph Drouhin, tour of the cellar plus tasting of the 6 wines, cost: 35€. Address: 1 cour du Parlement de Bourgogne
    4:00 pm - Bouchard Père & Fils, visit of the cellar, followed by a tasting of 6 wines (village & premier in red and white), cost: 19€. Address: Château de Beaune

    Would you like to join me? The appointments are all confirmed. I'll just have to email them to let them I'll be bringing a guest.

    Hello again Felix,

    Yes, I'd love to join you at the negociant visits on June 7. If you would be so kind as to let them know there will be another person, that would be great!

    Thanks for doing that!
    Paul

    P.S. If you'd like to discuss anything "offline" prior to May 31, my e-mail address is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (but I will not be bringing any communication device with me to France)
    I will arrive at the Hotel Ibis Styles Beaune Centre around 9:30pm on Fri June 6th
