Wine fanatics in Colorado have reason to rejoice and stress, as the Boulder Burgundy Festival 2015 announced its line-up. The events for the 4th annual weekend celebrating the prestigious French wine region look even better than in years past and the number of tickets to each of them is just as limited as before.
Festivities will kick off on Thursday, October 22 with a Champagne and caviar party. On Friday, a lunch focused on affordable Burgundy wines will be followed by a seminar on old and rare Burgundies hosted by master sommeliers Jay Fletcher, Brett Zimmerman, and Sean Razee. Dinner that evening centers around Domaine Dujac and is accompanied by food and wine service by Aspen's Little Nell team. Saturday brings a La Paulee-inspired lunch at Flagstaff House and a stunning Domaine Bonneau de Martray dinner at Frasca Food and Wine. A Chablis brunch, followed by a seminar from famed wine writer Ray Isle, and a monster grand tasting where some 200 Burgundy wines wrap up the weekend.
The catch of the wine-geek weekend is double-sided: It is a small affair with the smallest of the events limited to 42 guests and the largest to 200. And prices are steep: The cheapest ticket to the welcome reception costs $75 and the most expensive one goes up to $435. The complete schedule is available here.
