In just a few short weeks, Matter of Taste is returning to Zurich for its third edition, featuring a Grand Walkabout Tasting with over 600 iconic wines from more than 150 wineries around the world, an over-the-top BYO dinner and a series of masterclasses—the largest fine wine experience in Europe open to the public.
One of the masterclasses highlighted at this year’s Matter of Taste Zurich is an exclusive peek at the 2015 Côte de Nuits with Wine Advocate
reviewer William Kelley. The remarkable 2015 vintage that produced wines of great concentration is revealed to us through outstanding discoveries along the Côte de Nuits, featuring growers known to excel in their specific appellation. Some of the featured wines at this masterclass include the 2015 Domaine Jean Fournier Marsannay Clos du Roy
, the 2015 Domaine Tawse Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru
and the 2015 Domaine des Lambrays Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru
"2015 is a great vintage in the Côte de Nuits, producing deep, concentrated wines that are built for the long haul, so it will be fascinating to check in on their evolution and to see how different appellations and producers rendered the year's common themes," says Kelley.
It is noteworthy that most of these wines are almost impossible to find and buy due to their rarity and small production. We are most thankful to the growers to let us have the unique opportunity of an exclusive and unique peek at some of the best 2015s from the Côte de Nuits.
