With glass in hand, you'll be introduced to the basics of sensory analysis, tasting methodology and techniques, with the aim of learning to look, smell, taste, comment on and identify the main organoleptic characteristics of Burgundy white and red wines, not forgetting Crémant.

This course is open to everyone, from professionals and employees in the Burgundy wine industry to wine enthusiasts with a basic knowledge of wines who wish to go further in learning and discovering Burgundy wines through tasting.

The course and visits are led by a trainer from the Ecole des vins. Each course is subject to a satisfaction survey via a questionnaire given to each participant at the end of the session. These questionnaires are carefully studied to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of our training courses. Based on the results, actions are taken to improve content and optimize objectives. An overall grade is also given by the participants.
