Join Anne McHale MW and Jasper Morris MW at this illuminating masterclass, focused on specific Burgundy Theory topics from the D3 module of the WSET Diploma – replay available if you’re unable to attend live


🍷  The focus will be firmly on the D3 Theory specification, past/potential exam topics and areas where you could benefit from more context and explanation of the content in the D3 book. For example…

🍷  …how clear are you, REALLY, on the hows and whys of whole bunch winemaking? Could you confidently differentiate between the pros and cons of stem inclusion versus whole bunch inclusion? And discuss carbonic maceration with ease?

🍷  …could you have confidently answered this question using only the D3 book content?

Describe the business models of domaines, négociants and co-operatives in Burgundy. (60%)
Explain how this diversity came about. (20%)

How is Burgundy’s trade structure currently evolving? (20%)


🍷 Having the opportunity to learn from Jasper about his specialist subject in more depth than the scope of the book permits will allow you to add colour and understanding to an exam answer, should a question on Burgundy appear

🍷  You will also find that his expertise will help to bring these topics alive for you more than the book, which will in turn help you to remember them more easily!

🍷  Many of the concepts covered will have application across other exam questions even if these particular topics don’t appear.


The masterclass will be moderated by Anne and will last between 1 hour and 90 minutes, including a Q&A session at the end where you can ask Jasper your questions via Zoom chat.


🍷  The masterclass will be recorded and a limited-time (72 hours) replay available afterwards for all registrants

🍷  Non-D3 and non-WSET Diploma students are very welcome to register, on the understanding that the focus will remain very much on D3
