In May we had an opportunity to tour the beautiful vineyards of Burgundy with a group of wine lovers for a whole week. The week was a medley of unforgettable tastings, gastronomy at its fines and the pleasure of meeting local winemakers. Burgundy is like a jigsaw puzzle of tiny parcels, each of which brings its own character to the wine. We were amazed to find great differences in the wines of neighboring parcels - even though the grape variety is always the same - chardonnay for white wines and pinot noir for reds. The diversification that the soil - what the French call the "terroir" creates.
