Quick look into the subject revealed that indeed the selection of Burgundy red or white wine is very slim in all the wine shops in Manila. Even the better ones that supposedly cater to the more sophisticated and discerning wine lovers in Manila offer a surprisingly poor selection of Burgundy. Back vintages are as rare a find as a perfect pearl in an oyster.

In the past, Burgundy wines were in the Philippines for the few wine connoisseurs. That is no longer the case as just about all seasoned wine drinkers in Manila, Cebu, Pampanga and other parts of the Philippines turn their attention to the red and white wines of Burgundy. There would be any number of reasons behind this phenomenon. Burgundy red wines are exceptionally nice to drink with food, even the more exotic Asian cuisine. Some say that Burgundy red wines do not exhaust the palate and that drinking a bit more of it does not leave a nasty feeling afterwards like in the case of Bordeaux and new-world reds. Regardless, wine lovers in the Philippines definitely can use a reliable source for Burgundy red and white wines.

Wine lovers in Manila have discovered a small boutique wine shop that actually specializes in Burgundy wine. Contrary to what other wine shops in Manila do with their offerings, some 90% of the wine is from the Burgundy region. This includes the usual Burgundy reds and whites from the Cote d’Or region, as well as Chablis and Champagne. Talking about Champagne, this wine shop even offers a most interesting Sparkling wine from Burgundy, called Cremant de Bourgogne, definitely a much more practical choice of sparkling wine for all sorts of social events, including of course, wedding receptions. ……More about this wine shop in Manila that specializes in wines from Burgundy………..
