MV Delamotte Champagne, Brut, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Cóte des Blancs, France
Pairing Notes: We are thrilled to begin the evening with bubbles from one of our favorite houses. This wine is predominantly grand cru Chardonnay. Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are added to finish the personality of the wine. The finish is elegant and perfectly balanced with notes of white flesh fruit, pear, and ginger.
2015 La Scolca Cortese, Gavi di Gavi, Piedmont, Italy
Pairing Notes: Your first still wine this evening features notes of green apple, lemon citrus, and white flowers that dance with the Asparagus Ravioli. The wine is dry with a medium body and zing of acidity that makes it perfect with the creaminess of the Egg Yolk and the earthiness of the Black Trumpet Mushrooms.
2015 Elena Walch White Blend, ‘Beyond the Clouds’, Alto Adige, Italy
Pairing Notes: We are very excited to show off this unique blend, predominantly Chardonnay. Don’t let the name fool you, this is not your typical Chardonnay. The wine is beautifully aromatic with notes of pineapple and rose petals that are perfect with the Scallop. The palate is creamy and elegant with a ton of complexity that works well with the English Peas and Prosciutto.
2015 Terre Bianche Pigato, Liguria, Italy
Pairing Notes: Also known as Vermentino, this wine is sure to be a hit with the Poussin. The name Pigato, means spotted, and it refers to the little rusty tones that appear on the grape upon advanced maturation. The wine has notes of peach and aromatic herbs that lend itself to the Preserved Citrus. The acidic backbone of the wine plays well with the Artichoke Pearl Cous Cous.
2010 Arcanum Red Blend, ‘Valadorna’, Tuscany, Italy
Pairing Notes: This Merlot based Tuscan blend is absolutely stunning. Dark berries and a nice tannic structure lend this wine to be a great complement with the Tenderloin. Dried herbs and toasted baking spices are beautiful next to the Fondant and White Asparagus. The texture of the wine is just soft enough to pay homage to this course.
2005 Chateau Rieussec Late Harvest White Blend, Sauternes, France
Pairing Notes: We come to a magnificent close to the evening with this lovely glass. Notes of candied apricots and dried figs are perfect with the Coconut Pavlova. The finish is long and rich, with robust components of sweet fruit.
