Why do you love Burgundy?

Just when you think you've gotten your hands and mind wrapped around it all, you uncover a new piece of information that takes you further down the rabbit hole.  An estate you've never heard of, now is the talk of the town.  Or the next generation of a property takes over and everything resets for good or bad.  Or a property sells or buys vines changing their range.  Crazy weather patterns occur, laws within the region change; or... . You get the picture.  There is always something to study and talk about when it comes to Burgundy.

What is your favorite Burgundy Pairing?

While Burgundy, white specifically, is my go to pairing for almost anything.  Epoisses and aged Chablis has been a bit of a passion for me the past year.

How are you celebrating La Paulée Burgundy Week?

Starting February 22, 2017 the Morrell Wine Bar will be offering a special Burgundy Only Wine List where all 25 selections are available by the glass, half bottle, full bottle or part of a tasting flight.  As in years past, pricing will be extremely sharp and selections will include names like Rousseau, Roumier, Ramonet, Raveneau and more.
