Burgundy Tasting Trip: Day 7

November 8th 2017

Corton-Bressandes-2016

Last night we drank a delicious Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Clos de La Marechale by Mugnier 2013 in the Bistro de l’Hotel.

The seventh day of the tasting trip and we are driving south from Beaune town centre to Mercurey where we are tasting at Domaine Charton with Vincent.
