    JUNGLE WEDNESDAY WINE TASTING, January 10, 2018

    On to Burgundy!

    Last week, we tasted wines from Bordeaux. It is fitting that this week we move on to Burgundy, as the wines of these two regions are so frequently compared and contrasted. Whereas red Bordeaux are said to be structured and “angular,” Burgundies are soft and rounder, lighter in style. Some have described Bordeaux as masculine and burgundies as feminine, in fact.

    The map shows Burgundy’s location in Northeastern France.

    The major red wine-producing area of Burgundy is the Cote de Or (coat DOOR), which means “the golden slope” in French. All of these wines are made from Pinot Noir (PEA no  NO r).

    Most of the Vineyards south of the City of Beaune (bone) are in the Cote de Beaune.

    FEATURED WINE: Latour Pinot Noir Bourgogne

    The area north of the city is called the Cote de Nuits (new E) and is considered the most prestigious Pinot Noir-producing area in France.

    FEATURED WINE: Joseph Drouhin Cotes de Nuits Villages

    Pinot Noir has gone on to stardom in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, where the climate is strikingly similar to the countryside around Beaune. This grape is also used with dramatic success on the cooler South Island of New Zealand.

    Burgundy’s whites, with some exceptions such as the use of Alogite’ around the commune of Bouzeron in the Cote Chalonaise, are made from Chardonnay, the most popular fine wine grape throughout the world.   

    FEATURED WINE: Cave de Lugny Macon Villages Vielle Reserve

    The most northerly region of Burgundy is Chablis. Wines made here are described as being “crisp” and “flinty,” the latter perhaps because of the chalky soil here, a continuation of the famous White Cliffs of Dover on the English Coast.

    FEATURED WINE: Domaine Roland Lavantureux Chablis, 2015

    We’re continuing our wine tour of France Wednesday evening, beginning at 6 PM. As usual, the wines are $20 with an appetizer plate.

    It’s again about time for you to come out of the cold and into the sociable warmth of
