Chalk Hill Blue


Blue Burgundy was set up in July 2019 by Rob Young following his “early retirement” from GSK, as an umbrella company to cover his Drug Discovery Consulting and Education endeavours. 

Unable to use the name “Duke of Burgundy”  after their favourite butterfly and Rob’s  love of Pinot Noir, the composite  Blue Burgundy notes various connections with the colour blue and an anglicised “Blau Burgunder” as Pinot Noir is known in German.

Shared interests, with wife Claire, in Natural History and conservation, will become additions to the company – and photographic records will be shared.
