The Burgundians are back and doing what they do best: making world-beating wines. Sometimes the old masters do it best. We’ll be serving seven showstopping wines from the region for you to sample. This is French wine at the very top of its game: complex, sophisticated, the drink equivalent of a Jean Luc Godard film, but significantly more enjoyable. There’s a reason why it is held up as the gold standard for winemakers the world over. This is a very rare opportunity to sample a range of premium wines, perfectly paired with freshly prepared food to give you an exclusive experience quite unlike anything else. 


Crémant Bourgogne

There really is no better way to kick off a night than with some bubbles, but this is a level up. Think Champagne, but better: made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes and aged on the lees for two years, lending it a warming toastiness which exquisitely contrasts with the fresh, floral notes. 


Garnier Chablis

No herbicides, no insecticides, native yeast - brothers Xavier and Jerôme have made a wine that is as clean in its process as it is in taste. 


Luzy Macarez Conquette

Richard Luzy and his childhood friend François Macarez collaborated to run a winery in an area which has been a centre of viticulture since the age of Caesar. Taste the fruit of their friendship, and of the region’s millennia of grape-growing.


Luzy Macarez Pouilly Fuisse

Ripe and ready. It’s a classic Chardonnay, but fresher and fruitier on the nose. Monumental wine befitting of the 160-million year old (give or take) geological monolith that the vines cling on to: the Rock of Solutr̩é.


Laurent Perrachon Moulin A Vent

Don’t be fooled by the four centuries of wine-making pedigree within the Perrachon family - they’re still innovating even after all this time, focusing on sustainable methods so that the next generation can also produce mesmerising vintages. It wasn’t broke, but they still fixed it. 


Domaine Armelle et Bernard Chorey-les-Beaune

For five-generations the family have been tending their vines - indeed, they’re so in touch with their plants that they handpick and manually crush the grapes themselves. Expect a supple yet complex wine in which you can taste their commitment to their craft.


Domaine Armelle et Bernard Dame Marguerite

Marguerite worked at the vineyard for her entire life alongside her husband Louis - and what better tribute than a rounded and powerful wine, aged in French oak for 15-months, a fitting tribute to a lifetime of winemaking, and a testament to the vineyard’s commitment to making the crème de la cru.

    We have been to a few of the tastings and we always have a good time. We are novices in wine, but we find these sessions very accessible in trying to understand oenology. Recently we went to an enjoyable Beaujolais masterclass with Nicola who was very knowledgeable about the wine. He was able to give us a good recommendation for something to go with the fondue we were planning to have later that week too. We'll be back for sure. In vino veritas!!
