In the last class of the Wine School‘s Advanced: Classic Certification program, I taught on the terroir of Burgundy. The wines we used (all 1er Cru from Nuits) were some of the most perfect examples of the variation of the limestone scarp overlooking this tiny region, but also the extreme variation of winemaking styles now at play.
