$135 PER GUEST
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 composed of 50% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir, and 20% Pinot Meunier. All three varietals come together to deliver mouth watering wine that is dry, extremely attractive, balanced, and elegant.
2014 Roche de Bellene Pinot Noir, Savigny-Les-Beaune, Burgundy, France
Pairing Notes: We welcome the fall with a really beautiful glass of Pinot Noir. A fragrant nose greets you, diving into soft ripe red fruits. The wine’s center finds itself rich and earthy – a great way to pair a truffle custard and nutty pasta. 350 cases produced.
2015 An Approach to Relaxation Grenache, Sucette, Barossa Valley, Australia
Pairing Notes: A lovely and lively Grenache that is simply elegant and vibrant. This wine is purely driven by juicy red berries and a mouthwatering finish. The tangy pomegranate coulis will be such a dynamic duo with the wine along the saltiness of the Pekin duck – simple perfection.
2015 Pégau White Blend, Cuvée Reservee, Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc, Rhone Valley, France
Pairing Notes: An outstanding wine that’s going to knock you out of your chair. The wine smells incredible with big bursts of citrus flowers and honeysuckle. The wine’s palate follows with pears, white peaches and stone fruits. A great zippiness to the wine complements the cider-poached quince and scallops.
2014 Auguste Clape Syrah, Renaissance, Cornas, Rhone Valley, France
Pairing Notes: Prepare your taste buds for a truly special gem! The wine is riddled with ripe black plums, a savory black olive, and crushed black peppercorns. Its complexity keeps evolving as it swirls in your glass. The tobacco-cured beef will highlight the savory components as the potato croquettes play more towards the vivacious fruit side.
2015 Maeli Moscato Giallo, Colli Euganei, Veneto, Italy
Pairing Notes: A light bubbly wine to finish off such an exquisite meal. Moscato Giallo, with its light spritz, is the perfect companion for the Apple Crème Brulee. The palate bursts out with sweet honeydew melons and ripe apples along with tones of membrillo. Saluti!
