After last month’s tannat-athon, I thought we’d off-set two reds with a tasting of two whites.
I asked you which French regions you’d like to see featured, and it was very close between Rhone and Burgundy. So, without further ado:
NEW #TWSTaste: white Burgundy vs white Rhone, Thursday 13th Feb, 8-9pm
White Burgundy: Domaine Cordier, Mâcon Aux Bois d’Allier 2017
White Rhone: Viognier Grès du Trias, Coteaux de l’Ardèche, Vignerons Ardéchois 2018
I’m hoping these will be relatively new to most of you - I’ve certainly never tried them - but as a big white Burgundy and white Rhone fan, I can’t wait! It’s also the day after my birthday, so another great excuse to drink wine…
How to take part
- Buy a bottle of each of the above wines and have it delivered before Thursday 13th February 2020
- We like to encourage everyone to get some friends over, or plan a dinner they think will match - really make an evening of it! Let us know what you have planned…
- On the night, open the wines ready (we usually have a discussion in advance about whether we think they need decanting and for how long)
- Join us here on the Community a little before 8pm , and there will be a topic called ‘LIVE #TWSTaste’ ready and waiting - that’s where we’ll all taste and discuss the wines.
We hope you can join us - who’s in?
- Count me in!
- I’m hoping to make it
- Not for me this time
