Culinary Institute of America
The Old World – Northern Europe: France (Kit 2)

$108.00

Kit Two contains wines from the cooler regions of Northern France. Here we journey through three different regions of France. Alsace is France’s northeastern most growing area, nestled between the Vosges Mountains to the west and the Rhine River to the east. It is a narrow silver of vineyards spanning roughly 60 miles north south and results in some of France’s most distinctive white wines. The wine makers of Alsace call them the “noble varieties” and these grapes make some of the most aromatic wines: riesling, gewürztraminer, muscat, and pinot gris. Producers craft wines of exacting high standards and these expressions of white varieties are unmatched. Also in the kit is a lesser-known white wine called jacquère from the foothills of the Alps in eastern France. The Savoie is creating lovely wines that are beginning to earn international recognition. Finally, we begin to explore Burgundy. In this kit, we taste wines from the northern parts of Burgundy, including the celebrated chardonnay from Chablis and pinot noir from the Hautes Côtes; both cultivated in the limestone soils of Burgundy. There is a lot to experience and learn from in Kit 2; it contains two famous regions and one discovery area.

If ordering any kit(s) as a gift, you can request gift wrap or a gift message in the notes section when ordering.
