1) Serve Burgundy wines cool
The wine must be served cool (around 18 degrees) in an air-conditioned environment
The Burgundy wines is very delicate and the surrounding environment must be low in humidity. The water vapour will affect the balance of the wine and make the wine taste sour.
2) Wash the wine glass before use
All wine glasses even if they look clean will attract fungus after a few days. The fungus reacts badly with wine and give off very unpleasant aromas. Do rinse the glass with water and wipe with a clean lint free cloth before use.
3) Avoid Decanting
Where possible, pull the cork and let it air for at least an hour in the bottle before serving but avoid decanting.
All good burgundy wines should be allowed to breathe in the bottle using the slow oxygenation technique; just pull the cork and leave it standing in a cool place like the wine cellar.
Burgundy wines are very delicate and some cannot take the rough treatment of decanting.
