Final day in Burgundy. Grand Crus, Pascal Marchand and more
March 23, 20120
Note: Wines In Niagara is compiling a daily photo blog from Burgundy during the Grands Jours de Bourgogne, an annual celebration of the wines from the entire region.
While the first day of the week celebrated the white wines of Chablis, and Day 2 took us to the Cote de Nuits for a close look at the reds (pinot noirs) of Burgundy, the third day was reserved for a look at the newest and most northern appellation in Burgundy, Marsannay, Day 4 included a grand dinner at the Chateau de Meursault, the final day was a hectic and wonderful day of tasting myriad Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays as well as an exclusive dinner featuring 45 Grand Crus.
The final day also included special visits with Alex Gambal and Montreal-born Pascal Marchand, now a partner with Niagara’s Moray Tawse in two wineries in Burgundy.
As I said, it was a busy day that even saw us spend a few moments trying a new grower’s Champagne from an up and coming house in that region.
Here are some photos from Day Five, my final day, in Burgundy.
