Scenes from the Boulder Burgundy Festival Grand Tasting
It’s hard to explain the uniqueness of the Boulder Burgundy Festival Grand Tasting.
Yes, the bean counting is easy. There were twenty purveyors of fine wines who presented their wines. And by the official count, there were roughly 170 wines poured, although many distributors brought extra wines that were not listed in the official tasting book.
The data alone would be impressive for this tasting, which was held in the historic Boulderado Hotel’s event center.
But the thing that takes the numbers over the top is the fact that the importers and distributors who participated weren’t simply showing “entry-tier” wines. In fact, you would be hard pressed (excuse the pun) to find more than a handful of wines at this tasting that retail for less than $80-90.
