Join Anne McHale MW and Jasper Morris MW at this illuminating masterclass, focused on specific Beaujolais Theory topics from the D3 module of the WSET Diploma – replay available if you’re unable to attend live
***Including, by popular request, a SWOT analysis of the region***
🍷 The focus will be firmly on the D3 Theory specification.
🍷 We will cover a SWOT analysis of the region and then cover topics requested in advance by Anne’s email subscribers and Diplomatherapy community (time permitting!) We will prioritise exam-relevant topics and areas where you could benefit from more context and explanation of the content in the D3 book.
🍷 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 Beaujolais 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 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

D3 Guest Expert Series:
Jasper Morris MW on Beaujolais
Thursday 17th August 6pm UK time
Read what one participant had to say about Jasper’s last D3 Theory Guest Expert masterclass, which was on Burgundy
‘Fascinating session with Jasper Morris, covering key topics on Burgundy that are very useful to Diploma students. Jasper kept the topics engaging and explained key concepts thoroughly. I appreciate Anne putting these together; great time. Kudos!!’
Marcos Iglesias, D3 Student and March 2023 Masterclass Attendee
Jasper is one of the world’s leading authorities on Burgundy and author of the award-winning book Inside Burgundy. His company, Morris & Verdin, became known as the UK’s leading Burgundy importer during the 1990s before being sold to Berry Bros. & Rudd in 2003.
Jasper remained with BBR as Burgundy Director until 2017 before retiring from commerce to focus on his new career as Burgundy expert and critic, culminating in the launch of Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy in 2018.
A regular international lecturer on Pinot Noir and Burgundy, Morris also writes about the latter for Decanter and The World of Fine Wine, as well as being responsible for all the Burgundy entries in The Oxford Companion to Wine.
Anne was a role model when I studied for the WSET Diploma and she remains an inspiration today. One of the best coaches I’ve ever come across.
