The Importance of Soil: Why Burgundy?
Friday, October 24, 2014 - 05:00 PM Sala E
An interview with Claude and Lydia Bourgignon, who have dedicated their lives to the study of Burgundy’s soils. In 1990 they founded a microbiological soil analysis laboratory (LAMS), which today serves viticulturalists (and others) around the world. You will discover how at the foundation of a great wine, there is always the comprehension of the soil and subsurface on which the vine grows, and why Burgundy is a good starting point. An impassioned tasting of wines from three vastly different Burgundian terroirs: Sylvaine Pataille, a Marsannay from Côte de Nuits with aligoté, Chateau de Pommard from Côte de Beaune with pinot noir, and Domaine des vignes du Maynes from Maçonnais chardonnay. Each producer will showcase at least two versions of their wine grown on soils of different composition and structure.
