The Wines of Southern Burgundy Presented by Tracy Ellen Kamens Wine Educator, Writer & Consultant Thursday, September 26, 2019 8:00 pm atPoughkeepsie Grand Hotel Dutchess Room (Lobby Level)
To many wine aficionados, the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes are the most revered members of the grape species Vinous Vinifera. Most knowledgeable lovers and collectors of their wines would point to the historic home of these great noble wine grape varieties, the region of Burgundy in France, as the source of the finest, and certainly the most expensive examples of their wines.
Please join us on Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 8:00 p.m. for a tasting of Southern Burgundy wines. The Burgundy wine “sub regions” south of the Côte d’Or are the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais. While you won’t find Grand Cru vineyards in these areas, they are the source of many excellent and affordable Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, with many wine producing families dating back to the 17thCentury. We have selected a variety of regional and village wines for this tasting that not only represent southern Burgundy well, but arepriced under $30 per bottle, and available from wine stores in our area. Following are the wines at this tasting. The whites are 100% Chardonnay and the reds are 100% Pinot Noir.
