Making sense of Burgundy

Bordeaux Vineyards

Ally Burnie

The cellars of Bouchard Aîné & Fils at the Hôtel du Conseiller du Roy this year are hosting their 14th Tour of the Five Senses wine tasting experience. All the secrets wine holds in store are explored through hearing, sight, smell, touch and taste.

Each year during the Hospice de Beaune wine auction, Bouchard Aîné & Fils hosts a special creative themed tasting, bringing together original food and wine combinations.

This year’s event will feature foreign flavours incorporated with Burgundy wines in a menu full of new sensations. It is a discovery of Burgundy wines in all their guises, including a sparkling Crémant de Bourgogne, wines from both the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune, a wine from the barrel that is rarely offered to the public and a selection of old vintages.

The “Wines and Flavors of the World” combinations are faithful to Bouchard Aîné & Fils’s international profile as an exporter to over 60 countries around the world, with four “Menu des Chefs” dishes to be enjoyed with the wines.

Tastings are from 10am to 6pm on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 November. Pre-reservation and group booking prices for 16+ people are €30 (approx. $37) . Full price is €34 (approx. $42)
Prices include wine tasting, a limited edition tasting booklet by Julie Blanchin and an engraved glass.

Reservations can be made by email to [email protected]
