In the field – Tasting the 2019 Burgundy Vintage – Part I

By on 11/10/2020

We've touched down in Burgundy and have an intense, covid-safe programme of visits that will see us covering the length and breadth of Burgundy starting from Chablis in the north – to the south in the Mâconnais and not missing anything out in between!
