Accounting for less than 1% of the total production, Burgundy’s Grand Cru vineyards are the prized gem of the Cote d’Or, loosely translated as the Golden Coast. This region is steeped rich in history, with the very first clos vineyards founded by Cistercian monks. Their insight into the unique terroir of each individual vineyard led to the building of walls or clos to separate and distinguish one vineyard from another forming what are now the myriad of Climats, Premier and Grand Crus in this historical valley. It is this precise delineation of quality stretching back a whole millennia ago that has gained Burgundy UNESCO world heritage status.
Join us in this mini-horizontal tasting of three of the Cote de Nuits’ most celebrated producers and discover the nuance in quality and style that can be found in vineyards that neighbor just one another.
