You Chance to Taste the Terroir | Lot 119

Take home this lot of 25 bottles from excellent producers and stewards of terroir. Skittle’s motto is “taste the rainbow,” but Burgundy’s should be “taste the terroir.”

Lot Details

There’s no other wine that epitomizes terroir like Red Burgundy. You can talk all day about soil, topography, and climate, or simply “a sense of place” as the French often do, but true understanding comes from taste. While terroir can be a complex subject to pin down, tasting through some excellent Red Burgundy may be the trick to understanding! The land and weather from which the Pinot Noir grapes are grown imparts a unique quality that is specific to that single vineyard.

From Chambertin Clos de Beze’s hillside location that adds sensual charm and finesse to Chambolle Musigny’s chalky soil that leads to more elegant and concentrated fruit, to Pommard’s clay and iron-rich soil that creates powerful muscularity, the terroir pervades into every bottle.

Take home this lot of 25 bottles from excellent producers and stewards of terroir.
