Are you on the fence about Chardonnay? This weekend, we'll make you a convert—and we've enlisted 3 new portfolio producers to help out.
Chardonnay is arguably the single most polarizing variety of all of the noble grapes. When not handled properly, Chardonnay can come across sweet, overripe, and over-oaked, causing many to turn their noses up at its mere mention.
But in the hands of our skilled Burgundy producers with fruit from some of the region's great terroirs, Chardonnay arguably has no equal when it comes to white wine.
Join us from noon to 4pm on Saturday as we pour 6 exceptional white Burgundies from some of the region's best villages and vineyards, including Chablis, Meursault, and the legendary Chassagne-Montrachet.
Best of all, you can taste wines from producers who infuse every bottle they make with their own style and character.
From previous tastings, you may already be familiar with producers like the Mâcon's Domaine Guerrin and Pascal Bonhomme, and elite Chassagne-Montrachet estate Domaine Vincent & Francois Jouard.
But we're extremely excited to introduce you to three new producers: Chablis' Domaine Testut and two talented winmakers (Bernard Millot and Philippe Chavy) with parcels in Puligny and Meursault.
Peter has a history of discovering future-star Burgundy producers while they're still under the radar, and these 3 vignerons are no exception.
Saturday's line-up includes top-notch Burgundy Chardonnays at a range of price points, from a handful of fantastic value village cuvées, to a beautiful entry-level Meursault, to a 92-point 1er Cru Chassagne Montrachet.
