Jasper Webinars

Jasper Webinars are a series of talks on all aspects of Burgundy, hosted by our partners.

We cover key topics of general interest as well as a look at the different sectors of the region, examining the positive and negative effects of global warming on specific vineyard sites, and introducing viewers to the up-and-coming stars in each village.

    Event Date: November 26, 2020 Following up from the success of our events looking at Bonnes Mares and Chambertin Clos de Bèze, we extend the illumination of individual grands crus to Grands Echezeaux. Will we find more similarity with the rest of Echezeaux, or with close neighbours Clos de Vougeot and Musigny? Samples available for this event will include the...

  • Jasper on Zoom: Bonnes Mares
    Jasper on Zoom: Bonnes Mares
    Event Date: November 4, 2020 Bonnes Mares –  one of the great grand crus of Burgundy, fascinating and just a touch schizophrenic: does it belong in Chambolle-Musigny or Morey-St-Denis? Do we prefer the brown soil or the white soil renditions? Discover all with this great line-up from the top producers: Wine Samples: 2014 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Bonnes-Mares, Grand...

    Jasper on Zoom: Grand Cru Burgundy: Chambertin Clos de Bèze
    Event Date: October 13, 2020 The second in our grand cru series features Chambertin Clos-de-Bèze, sibling or perhaps consort of Chambertin itself. This wine was so brilliantly described by Evelyn Waugh (Brideshead Revisited), as serene and triumphant!

  • Jasper on Zoom: Beaujolais: Moulin-à-Vent
    Jasper on Zoom: Beaujolais: Moulin-à-Vent
    Event Date: October 8, 2020 The most powerful of the Beaujolais crus and the most age-worthy is surely Moulin-à-Vent, a wine which can seem positively Burgundian as it ages. It has also caught the eye of various Côte d’Or producers in recent times, with many choosing to bottle different vineyards within the cru. This tasting will display the authority of...

    Jasper on Zoom: Jasper’s Top 6 Côte Chalonnaise Vignerons
    Event Date: September 19, 2020 Question: Where to go in Burgundy for fine quality at fair prices? Answer: to the very best producers of the Côte Chalonnaise. I have chosen six of my personal favourite producers who leap out of the ordinary, as viewed through the prism of the deliciously accessible 2017 vintage. Two whites and four reds will help...

  • Jasper on Zoom: Chambolle-Musigny Combe d’Orveau
    Jasper on Zoom: Chambolle-Musigny Combe d’Orveau
    Event Date: September 9, 2020 This unusual vineyard in Chambolle-Musigny should not be overlooked. It is the only lieu-dit in all of Burgundy which has four classifications from generic to grand cru (as part of Musigny). We have topped and tailed the tasting to bring two excellent village examples and all four of the wines which are regularly made at 1er Cru...

  • Jasper on Zoom: 2010 Red Horizontal
    Jasper on Zoom: 2010 Red Horizontal
    Event Date: August 31, 2020 2010 has proven to be an unsuspected star for the red wines of Burgundy. It did not feel like a great vintage at the time, overshadowed by the sunshine of 2009, but opinions started to improve when we tasted the wines in barrel, and now 2010 is established as one of the success stories of...

  • Jasper on Zoom: Aligoté Fest
    Jasper on Zoom: Aligoté Fest
    Event Date: August 27, 2020 Pay attention at the back – Aligoté is coming to town! No longer the grape relegated to receiving a slug of crème de cassis to make a vin blanc Kir, Aligoté has taken the wine world by storm in the last two years. The younger generation of vignerons have started to produce some truly exciting...

  • Jasper on Zoom: 2014 White Horizontal
    Jasper on Zoom: 2014 White Horizontal
    Event Date: August 24, 2020 Once in a while a vintage comes along which stands out just that little bit more. It is not always so obvious for white Burgundy, but a clear favourite for the vintage of the last decade in white must be: 2014! Modest (plus) in red but magical in white, 2014 has already provided much enjoyment,...

  • Jasper on Zoom: Understanding Corton
    Jasper on Zoom: Understanding Corton
    Event Date: August 20, 2020 If ever there was a misunderstood appellation in Burgundy, it must be Corton. So much wine classified as Grand Cru, so many different styles. Much of it is very good wine, not all of it deserves to be Grand Cru. But if you study the appellation in detail, you will find the wine to suit...

  • Jasper on Zoom: Grand Crus of Morey St-Denis
    Jasper on Zoom: Grand Crus of Morey St-Denis
    Event Date: August 13, 2020 Time to take a good look at the very best of Morey St Denis. Two wines from Clos de la Roche will face two from Clos St Denis: will producer or terroir lead the way? The two grand crus are intertwined but typically show quite different characters. Just as fascinating is the rivalry between Clos...

  • Jasper on Zoom: Pouilly-Fuissé
    Jasper on Zoom: Pouilly-Fuissé
    Event Date: August 6, 2020 The most dynamic white wine appellation in Burgundy at the moment is Pouilly-Fuissé. There has been a surge in the number of top flight producers at work, perhaps encouraged by the up-coming classification of 1ers crus. I take us through the characteristics of the different villages, which make up the appellation, outline which vineyards are...

  • Jasper on Zoom: Top White Burgundy – Montrachet & friends
    Jasper on Zoom: Top White Burgundy – Montrachet & friends
    Event Date: July 30, 2020 I lead us through each of the different Montrachet grands crus, each with its own character as decided by its place on the slope and what is going on below the ground. We delve into the detail of vintage and vigneron distinctions to complete this overview of White Burgundy’s finest hillside. The session is rounded...

  • Jasper on Zoom: Gevrey Clos St-Jacques in 2017
    Jasper on Zoom: Gevrey Clos St-Jacques in 2017
    Event Date: July 23, 2020 Whenever the question is asked: Which 1er Cru vineyards in Burgundy might be promoted to Grand Cru? Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St-Jacques is always cited among the very first names due for promotion. What makes it even more intriguing is that there are just 5 producers, and their holdings all run up and down the slope parallel...

    Jasper on Zoom: Magnificent Meursault
    Event Date: July 13, 2020 Meursault may not have any grands crus to its name, but this favourite white Burgundy village is chock full of star producers.

  • Jasper on Zoom: The New Generation in Burgundy
    Jasper on Zoom: The New Generation in Burgundy
    Event Date: July 1, 2020 For so many years the “new generation” of exciting young Burgundians at the helm of their family domaine meant the likes of Dominique Lafon, Etienne Grivot, Ghislaine Barthod, Louis Boillot and co. Now, in turn, it is time for them to be thinking of handing on the baton. We invited Léa and Pierre Lafon, Mathilde...

  • Jasper on Zoom: The Grand Crus of Chambertin
    Jasper on Zoom: The Grand Crus of Chambertin
    Event Date: June 25, 2020 Chambertin and Clos de Bèze have established their positions at the top of the grand cru hierarchy, but: What of the satellite grands crus? Are they all up to the mark? What are their individual characteristics? Who makes the best in each of them? Aided by six samples from a range of top producers, I...

    Jasper on Zoom: In Conversation with Benjamin Leroux
    Event Date: June 18, 2020 Benjamin Leroux is one of the new generation Burgundian winemakers, who has made a big impression in a relatively short time.

  • Jasper on Zoom: Bonneau du Martray
    Jasper on Zoom: Bonneau du Martray
    Event Date: June 15, 2020 Myths about Corton-Charlemagne abound, but it is accepted that part of the vineyard did once belong to Charlemagne, King of the Franks, Holy Roman Emperor, reformer of education, father of Western Europe and famously, a wine lover… Almost unique among Burgundy growers for only producing grand cru wines, Domaine Bonneau du Martray owns 11 hectares...

  • Jasper on Zoom: Biodynamic Burgundy
    Jasper on Zoom: Biodynamic Burgundy
    Event Date: June 11, 2020 Is this the new mainstream? Or are biodynamic practitioners “Out where the buses don’t run”? Certainly a number of cult domaines have espoused this philosophy of grape growing and winemaking. To talk us through how the biodynamic movement has developed in Burgundy, I have selected six wines from among the most noted producers, so we...

    Jasper on Zoom: Outstanding White Burgundy: 6 of The Very Best 1er Crus
    Event Date: June 5, 2020 With only Corton-Charlemagne and the Montrachets in the grand cru bracket, we need to test out the options among the finest 1ers crus which can often be just as rewarding and rather better value for money. We have selected one wine from each of six villages – including a rarity from the Côte de Nuits...

    Jasper on Zoom: 2015 Red Burgundy: Where Does It Rank in the Hall of Fame?
    Event Date: May 23, 2020 2015 is certainly a candidate for an ‘All Time Great’ rating. But just how good are the red wines of Burgundy in 2015? Do they combine the power of 2005 with the grace of 2010? Do they have the potential to develop extra depth and layers of flavour with age. To try to answer these...

    Jasper on Zoom: With or Without Stems
    Event Date: May 9, 2020 Red Burgundy: To destem or not to destem, that is the question. The latest in our line of top level Burgundy webinars will review three pairs of wines with each pair showing differing approaches to the complex question of what to put in your fermentation tanks: just the berries or the whole bunch of grapes, stems...

  • Jasper on Zoom: Chablis
    Jasper on Zoom: Chablis
    Event Date: May 2, 2020 Chablis is a gem, known to many but ignored by many more. Maybe the sea of mass market Chablis – and indeed misrepresentations of Chablis over the years – has hidden from view the joy which this region can bring, in authentic hands. Though we shall discuss Chablis as a whole, from Petit Chablis to...
