THE CRITICS SAID IT BEST…
A WINE ENTHUSIAST’S DREAM! We are taking a spin on our “Family Winemaker Series” and instead of hosting one winery, we are hosting an entire region…BURGUNDY!!! WEDNESDAY NIGHT and ONLY WEDNESDAY NIGHT, twenty ticket purchasers will be able to try 8+ Burgundian wines (three whites, five reds and six from 2015 vintage). Your moderator Paul Bullard, owner of Paul Bullard & Associates, will guide you through a spirited conversation and tasting paired with Chef Alexander’s family-style creations. Paul has an unbelievable wealth of knowledge for French wines, especially Burgundies, as he’s been selling, collecting and educating others on these wines for over 40+ years. Paul’s personal brokerage represents some of the biggest names in the game including; Abreu, Marcassin, Martinelli, Bevan, Zakin, Cayuse & Walter Hansel to name a few. Paul also represents “Beaune Imports” a direct importer of small production, premium crafted wines from France & Spain. Don’t be surprised if Paul shares a bottle or two from his private cellar for this epic event!
The Tasting Line-UP!
The growing conditions in 2015 were perfect, with low yields creating highly concentrated wines. In most cases, to even attempt to pull off an event like this wouldn’t be feasible because most Burgundy, especially the top Domaines can retail for anywhere between $200-$2000+ per bottle. AND…that’s if you can even find the wine to purchase.
Partnering with Paul Bullard and selecting wines exclusively from the Beaune Importsportfolio we have been able to create an remarkable tasting experience touching on everything from a daily drinking Borgogne Rouge to the most famous designation…GRAND CRU! Here is our full tasting lineup:
2016 Lafon Macon Clos de la Crochette – $35
2015 Chateau de Puligny Montrachet St. Aubin “En Remilly” Premier Cru – $60 – LIMITED
2015 Chateau de Puligny Montrachet AOC – $75 – LIMITED
