OMGD Burgundy Winemaker Dinner
November 24, 2017
Our dinner takes place in the cellars of Berry Brothers and Rudd in St James, London. We are delighted to welcome Burgundy’s new star, Olivier Bernstein, to take us through his wines. These receive glowing praise from both Jancis Robinson and Allen Meadows among others. The range focuses on six grands crus from the Côte de Nuits: a trio from Gevrey-Chambertin, specifically Charmes-Chambertin, Mazis-Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze; along with Clos de Vougeot, Bonnes Mares and Clos de la Roche. These are supported by three 1ers crus, three white wines and a single village cuvee from Gevrey-Chambertin. Naturally, production of each wine is tiny, considering the low yields coming from old vines. The wines are superb and are naturally matched by very elevated prices and so diners will be privileged to sip at greatly reduced prices.
