We think that any series of tastings should include a Burgundy tasting. For our first foray into this region we took a trip across the region tasting wines from some of the most recognisable sub-regions with the wines from Domaine Faiveley.
We kick off with a glass of refreshing yet interesting Pouilly-Fuissé 2017, followed by a promising Puligny-Montrachet 2015 which still has years ahead of it of potential bottle aging. Guests moved on to 3 red wines. The first red served was the Mercury monopole 1er Cru Clos de Myglands 2013, a delicious wine showing that Burgundy can be affordable and approachable. That was followed by Chambertin Clos de Béze 2001, showing evolving fruits, earthy notes and silky smooth tannins. The tasting was caped off with a couple of bottles of Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Porêts Saint-Georges 2014 en magnum.
