A Taste of Burgundy will feature a 5 course dinner (menu to be announced) paired with some of Burgundy’s finest:
Champagne Aperitif: Delamotte Brut NV
From Cramant to Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, through Avize and Oger : all are found in the Côte des Blancs. Its location is one of Delamotte’s richest assets. The chalky soil, the flora and the sloping vineyards give the grapes their exceptional character, delivering delicate, consistent champagnes. Championing this exceptional terroir, drawing the best from it while maintaining absolute respect for the vines and the environment – that’s what Delamotte is all about.
First Course: Louis Michel Chablis 2019
This is the story of the Michel family, who has been making wines in the heart of Chablis since the 19th century.A firmly rooted sense of excellence is passed down from generation to generation. Louis Michel & Fils has always been a family business,and is managed today by Guillaume Michel, who takes great pride in perpetuating the Domaine’s ethos.
Second Course: Vincent Girardin Puligny Montrachet Vieilles Vignes 2018
The history of Maison Vincent Girardin is relatively recent. In 1980, at the age of 19, Vincent Girardin, the son of a family of winegrowers based in Santenay since the 17th century, decided to strike out on his own and began producing wine from five acres of vines that he had inherited from his parents. From his earliest youth, Vincent had a passion for working with vines and great respect for the potential that they represent, and his ambition was to produce his own wine. The quality of his wines was quickly recognized by connoisseurs all over the world, and this enabled him to expand his activity, focusing primarily on the great white and red wines of the Côte de Beaune. To cope with the growing demand for his wines, he developed an approach that was new in Burgundy: he purchased grapes from producers who shared the same philosophy and the same high standards. In 2012, Vincent Girardin sold his operation to a long-standing partner of the Maison. Jean-Pierre Nié, President of the Compagnie des Vins d’Autrefois in Beaune, naturally decided to continue with the small team of nine people that had been faithful to the Maison for many years. Today, Eric Germain continues to uphold the style of the wines, and Marco Caschera markets them all over the world.
Third Course: Henri Gouges Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru ‘Clos des Porrets’ 2018
The creation of Domaine Henri Gouges was the culmination of 400 years of family grape farmers, and it is, in many minds, the top domaine in Nuits-Saint-Georges. Henri formed the domaine in 1920 but was soon discouraged with selling the fruit to négociants. He envisioned a better quality wine, and by 1933, he was producing, bottling, and selling directly. He, along with the Marquis d’Angerville from Volnay, was at the forefront of battles against fraud in Burgundy in the 1920s. In the 1930s, Monsieur Gouges was one of the people charged with the job of delineating the crus in Burgundy for the Institut National d’Appellation d’Origine, and he was a member of that regulatory body at its outset. Since the beginning, the domaine has remained an undivided family property. In 1967 Henri’s two sons, Michel and Marcel, succeeded him and added to the holdings of the estate. Each of them handed leadership over to one of their sons to bring the domaine to the next stage. Pierre and Christian began the modernization of the vineyards and the winery, which they have now turned over to Pierre’s son, Gregory, and his cousin, Antoine. While the house style has evolved, the main focus is the better reflection of the terroir in the fruit through organic viticulture. They believe that healthy vines produce quality fruit and thus more expressive terroir-driven wines.
Cheese: Liger-Belair Moulin a Vents 2019
It’s a blend of 9 parcels who represents 7 hectares, 50% of the whole production of the domain wine.
This blend offers a wine with a good density at the beginning of the mouth follow by a very interesting length bring by less deep and mineral soil.
Dessert: Perrin Muscat de Beaumes de Venise 2019
The Perrin Family’s range of wines enable you to discover the richness of the Southern Rhône Valley and its diverse terroirs. With the same expertise and the same passion as for Château de Beaucastel, the family prides itself in bringing out the true character of each terroir. The “Famille Perrin” way makes each wine unique: using organic and biodynamic approaches, mastering the art of blending and bringing out the freshness of the Southern aromas.
