"Drinking the Stars!" Champagne, Burgundy and Chablis with Wilson Kwok
“Come quickly, I am drinking the stars!” exclaimed Dom Perignon after tasting his first Champagne. Very dignified Burgundy produces some of the world’s finest and most expensive dry white and red wines as it cultivates its grapes from over 400 different “terroir”. The distinctness of the Chablis wine is considered by wine masters to be one of the “purest” expressions of the varietal character of Chardonnay.
Following the success of our inaugural wine tour to Bordeaux last year, where our members were introduced to the basics of French winemaking, the Society is pleased to present a gastronomic tour of the renowned wine regions of Champagne, Burgundy and Chablis. This follow-up program essentially completes a comprehensive study of the three most famous and important French wine producing regions: Aquitaine (Bordeaux), Burgundy (and Chablis) and Champagne.
Together with internationally renowned food and wine connoisseur, wine judge and educator Wilson Kwok, we will be visiting important wineries such as "Clos de Vougeot" in Burgundy, "William Fevre" in Chablis and celebrated champagne cellars such as "Moet Chandon Dom Perignon, Salon and Deutz".
Our gastronomic adventure will include “Le Top du Top” establishments such as Maison Lameloise (3 stars Michelin) in Burgundy, Hostellerie des Clos (1 star) in Chablis and L’Assiette Champenoise (2 stars) in Champagne.
