A man looking at the camera

French wines have a glorious reputation, especially those from the region of Burgundy, producing the famous French Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

What about American wines? Over the past decades, California wines have slowly earned a prestigious place on the worldwide wine market. California’s terroir has been proved to produce good quality Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays too.

So, what’s the real difference between French and Californian wines? Is California able to produce French style wines?

During this webinar, Daniel Baron & Frederick Boelen have conducted a comparative wine tasting of two Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from Complant wine in California and Lucien Rocault in Burgundy.

Our two experts got your impressions as you tasted the wines, answered your questions and talked about the differences between:
– Burgundy & California terroir
– Look, smell & taste of the two Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs
– The importance of choosing the harvest date
– Winemaking practices and barrel selection
– Where to find the wines
– Stories from the winemakers!
