“This is part one of two with the expert of Burgundy and Master of Wine, Jasper Morris. He has published two editions of his book “Inside Burgundy”, which both times has won the Andre Simon Prize. There really isn’t much that Jasper doesn’t know about Burgundy over the four decades that he has dedicated to this region. So this episode we’ll be talking about the quality of Pinot noir and discussing the styles of this great variety across the world. Of course, Chardonnay will get a little attention to, we’ll be talking about the use of natural yeasts in Burgundy and the changes in Burgundy over the last 40 years, looking at the use of fertilizers and their effects, the technologies that have been adopted and premox (premature oxidation).
