Inside Premier Cru Burgundy
In Portland – Friday night March 1st, 5-8pm
Join us at the Scott Paul PDX tasting room for a one-time only special tasting event featuring top 1er Cru Burgundies, led by winemaker-importer Scott Paul Wright.
Sites that have proven over the centuries to be capable of producing some of the very best Burgundy has to offer, the Premier Crus make up less than 10% of the vineyard land in Burgundy. Only the legendary Grand Crus surpass the 1er Crus in prestige, but they also cost hundreds to thousands of dollars per bottle today. While not inexpensive, the Premier Crus can deliver much better bang-for-the-buck, and it is not rare for a great 1er Cru to outperform a Grand Cru in head-to-head tastings.
For this one night only, we’ll be pouring exclusive 1er Crus from star producers Frédéric Mugnier, Comte Armand, Buisson-Charles and Violot-Guillemard. Tasting fee is $25 for this special event, refunded with any purchase of the featured wines.
