Behind the Label with BVV

Bourgogne de Vigne en Verre (or BVV, for short) was co-founded by a group of small growers in the 1980s, in order to pool marketing resources and allow the growers to do what they do best: nurture vines to produce quality wines.

Behind the Label with Domaine Borgeot and Emma Sarjeant of Anthony Sarjeant Wines

The key takeaway from this tasting was that, despite the challenges of the 2021 vintage which was beleaguered by frost and poor weather, Pascal and Laurent Borgeot continue to approach their wines with the perfect balance of calm consideration and joyful exuberance, which defines their wines.

Of course, we (well, at least I) couldn't do that, and was relying on a certain amount of luck.
