Barnes Burgundy Tasting 23rd & 24th June 2015

by Ed H-B


Burgundy Tasting – Tuesday 23rd & Wednesday 24th June

For our second in-store tasting of 2015 we have chosen a real Lea & Sandeman speciality – BURGUNDY.

This is not an en primeur tasting, but rather a selection of Burgundy from our current range – all available and all drinking now.

Please note that as Burgundy is equally famous for its reds and whites this tasting will be split 50 / 50 between red and white wine.

We plan to show around 16 wines including such famous names such as Gevrey Chambertin, Vosne Romanee and Pommard for red, with Chablis, Meursault, and Puligny Montrachet among the whites, along with of course some great value alternatives.

How do our tastings work?

For those of you yet to try our tastings, and / or are new to our list, and are wondering what goes on the following brief description may help:

The tastings are held in the Barnes store between 6.00 and 9.00pm.

Around 15 – 20 people attend each tasting, the tastings themselves are fairly informal, stand up, not sit down affairs, and are not tutored – rather you can taste what you like in your own time, in any order you like, and retry your favourites.

Tasting notes will be provided with a little information on each wine, where it comes from, what it’s made from, why it’s notable etc

Emerson and I will be on hand and happy to answer any questions you may have.


Tickets are £15 per person and refundable against any purchase on the night of £50 +
