Burgundy is a wine region that is constantly changing and developing in the pursuit of higher quality.
The current generation of vignerons are much more open to new ideas than previous generations and are well travelled and taste widely, not just Burgundy wines but benchmark wines from around the world. This combined with increasingly high prices for top appellations has resulted in a lot of fierce ambition amongst the current generation of winemakers, who all strive to make ever finer wines that more clearly express their underlying terroirs.
Nowhere is this more apparent than in the Côte de Beaune where a wealth of dynamic young vignerons make the region a veritable hotbed of talent!
Join me for an exciting webinar where we will introduce many of the rising stars and compare who they stand up to the existing benchmark producers.
