Join Charles Curtis MW for a superb Burgundy masterclass at DFWE London

Tickets are selling fast for this for this incredible tasting of 12 Burgundy grand cru wines from a specific area of the Côte d’Or.

On Saturday 11th November 2023, the Decanter Fine Wine Encounter (DFWE) will welcome back Charles Curtis MW to London. With his return, a sublime Burgundy masterclass awaits, promising to be an exceptional experience to taste 12 top grand cru wines in the company of a leading expert.

Curtis, Decanter’s Burgundy correspondent, will guide guests to explore the region’s broad, complex terrain in depth. Burgundy’s majestic hill of Corton has been home to winegrowers for centuries. Today, some of the region’s most prominent producers feature across its relatively large expanse of grand cru vineyards, although consumers sometimes still overlook this crucial source for top quality wines.

The masterclass will feature both red and white wines – all grand cru – from vintages that range from 2008 to 2020, and coming from all three villages allowed to use the Corton name: Pernand-Vergelesses, Aloxe-Corton and Ladoix-Serrigny.
