On Sunday morning, before a sold-out crowd of more than 80 people at the Boulder Burgundy Festival, he talked at length about how he sees himself as just one the many “stewards” of Corton-Charlemagne, a cru and a hill that produces one of Burgundy’s most coveted wines.
He’s just one chapter, he explained, in a legacy that spans more than 1,200 years.
“I am just a small part” of the story, he told the rapt audience who tasted seven vintages of the wine: 2013, 2011, 2009, 2007, 2005, 2003, and 2001.
In coming days, I’ll be posting notes from all the tastings and events (including the seminar with Jean-Charles) over on the festival blog.
Right now, Tracie P and I are just catching our breath and catching up with our girls, whom we’ve missed terribly over the long weekend.
Today’s a day for butterfly wings, tutus, and crayons… Corton-Charlemange will just have to wait.
