Somm Special: Burgundy 2009 Grand Cru Tasting with Ryan Leung from Mandarin Oriental [Full]

May 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


We are very pleased to welcome guest host Ryan Leung, Head Sommelier, Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong, for a very special Burgundy 2009 Grand Cru comparative tasting. As well as being a certified Sommelier of the Court of Master Sommeliers, Ryan is also a Certified Specialist of Wine and a French Wine Scholar. He is passionate in keeping track of interesting and unique wines, especially using his experience and knowledge as a professional sommelier for the past seven years to help guide guests in selecting the perfect wine to pair with their meals. His interest in wines has led him to travel extensively around wine regions such as Piedmont, Tuscany, Napa, Sonoma and also Barossa Valley.

The 2009 vintage in Burgundy was fantastic across the board, with perfect ripeness achieved in many vineyards. The health of the grapes, according to Jancis Robinson MW, was exceptional, free of diseases and rot, with very little sorting needed, even for the most meticulous of wineries such as DRC. Tonight, Ryan compares 3 different Grand Cru vineyards within the Cotes de Nuits to explore the nuances in the terroir and how at almost ten years old these wines are developing.
