Fine Wine Tuesday… Ending the Burgundy En-Primeur Campaign with a Grand Cru Lunch…

In the wine trade, we spend so much time finding wines, tasting wines, negotiating the purchase of wines and selling wines that sometimes it’s good to pause, reflect, and actually drink some fine wines.

With Burgundy En-primeur 2015 reaching a successful climax, it seemed fitting to close off the campaign with a wonderful Grand Cru Burgundy lunch at La Trompette, one of London’s best 1 Star Michelin restaurants. 

As always, some top wines were expertly served, creatively matched with fantastic food, and enjoyed in good company, just as the producers intended them to be. Simple.
