Wine Tasting Experience
A Journey Through Breath-taking Wines
Tucked away behind the scenes, our private wine cellar is accessible only by appointment with our Resort Head Sommelier, Jonathan Jonsson. Join Jonathan for a unique wine tasting in the stunning surrounds of The Cellar, where hundreds of specially selected bottles line the shelves waiting for a discerning diner to order them. Allow Jonathan to take you on a journey sampling some of these impressive vintages, in a personalised tasting to suit your palate.
OUR WINE TASTINGS
Choose from our five wine tasting experiences: Sensory Exploration, Hidden Treasures, Time Will Tell, Inside Burgundy and Beyond Everything Wine Experience. Each guided tasting will bring you on a specialty curated journey and transport you to the vineyards of the beloved wine lands.
Learn about the physiology of taste and how to evaluate acidity, tannins, residual sugar and other structural elements of wine. Start building your wine description vocabulary. Gain confidence in knowing and describing the wines you like. This tasting is designed to give you great basic knowledge, whilst also being an enjoyable experience, whether it is your first wine tasting or you want to further develop the practice of tasting wines. The tasting of six wines will focus on the structure of wine, various styles and main grape varieties.
Discover wines and regions that embody exceptional quality, unique flavours and captivating history. This tasting will give you enough insight so you are not only able to spot the hidden gem on any wine list, but you will also have the ability to impress any wine connoisseur! This tasting of five wines will focus on the history and local varieties of these hidden treasures.
Time Will Tell
Delve into the ageing process of wine. Learn the simple rules for successful ageing and discover the ageing timeframes of different wines. Explore the various vessel types used in the ageing process and the impacts these have on the flavour and perception of the wine itself. This tasting will take you on a journey through the decades. We will start with a developing wine and move through various decades until we reach our final wine, which is dated back to the previous century. The tasting of five wines will focus on the ageing process and the evolution of aroma over time.
Surrender yourself to the complexity of wines from the most sought after wine region in the world. Are you a Chambolle or a Gevry wine lover? What is the difference between Chassange-Montrachet and Montrachet itself? These are the questions we will look to answer, along with discovering which commune you should gravitate towards in the future based on your palate. This tasting of five wines will clarify Burgundian wine law, the stylistic differences between villages and the value of wines from this region.
