Today we toured the Burgundy region with acclaimed Tasmanian wine maker and national wine judge, Greg Melick who owns Pressing Matters in the Coal River Valley, and who was obviously the best tour guide of a wine region one could have. Greg and wife Michele are in Burgundy and offered to take us around to show us the real thing. He took us past kilometres of vineyards as you can imagine, explaining the best grapes Grandes Cru, Premiere Cru and Villages Cru, showed us through the Chateau du Clos de Vougeot and we even saw the most sought after, and expensive wine in the world at the Romanee Conti vineyard. Gevrey Chambertin is a commune of vineyards in the same region which we also had the privilege of seeing. Interesting day, amazing historical region and most importantly, a very fine drop. Some photographs of our day of touring and note, Tony in silent concentration as he listens to Greg making our wine history lessons easy. I’ve inserted a couple more photos of our chateau accommodation (Tony on the steps, our garden and what looks like stunning stable in its former glory).
