Event — A 24-hour plunge into La Romanée & Bouchard — Re-scheduled


Wine is unquestionably the nectar that enables a discovery of the past while fully living the present. For this reason, on April 16, 2021, we invite you to celebrate history by “ awakening ” a number of bottles, some of them more than a century old, during a unique moment. For 24 hours, the world of the famous Maison Bouchard Père & Fils will open its doors to you: that of the château as well as that of its exceptional expertise.

Calling all great epicureans in love with Burgundy. This trip starts at the Château de Beaune with a vertical tasting of the famous “ La Romanée ” from 1998 to 1865, through ten vintages commented by Philippe Prost, Bouchard Père & Fils ambassador. To mark the occasion, a menu paired with the tasting notes of the vintages will be created by three Michelin-starred chefs Michel, César and Léo Troisgros and their team.

Saturday morning brings the departure for the vineyards of the famous Chevalier-Montrachet terraces and a tasting of seven  white Grands Crus,, after which we will enjoy a convivial picnic in the heart of the vineyards, as a further reminder that wine is above all an elixir for sharing.
