September 2017 RESERVE WINE PAIRINGS
$135 PER GUEST
MV Copinet Champagne, Brut, Extra Quality, Vallée de la Marne, France
Pairing Notes: This stunning glass is brought to you from one of our favorite grower-producers. When Marie and Alex were visiting here in the States, there were 3 people running the winery back home. This phenomenal start to the evening is a blend of Pinot Noir, Meunier, and Chardonnay. The glass features notes of baked apple, lemon rind, and soft yeast.
2014 J.K. Carriere Rosé, Glass, Willamette Valley, Oregon
Pairing Notes: There’s nothing better than a great glass of Rosé and chilled tomato soup with seafood. This glass is redolent with fresh fruit and ocean spray. Seasoning from the French oak barrels will add depth to the dish, highlighting some of the spices and making the caviar really stand out.
2015 Selbach Oster Riesling, Kabinett, Mosel, Germany
Pairing Notes: The smoked Pork tenderloin has a lovely companion in this off-dry Riesling. The wine is pure, sophisticated and has a delicate allure about it. The wine gives way to the salty notes of the Tonnato sauce, alongside the creamy notes of avocado.
2013 Salwey Pinot Gris, Oberrotweiler Eichberg GG, Baden, Germany
Pairing Notes: A Grand Cru to remember, this Pinot Gris is wonderful and showcasing yellow plum, star fruit, zesty citrus and raw nuts. The sweet scallop paired with the wine is electric! The sauce incorporates itself, and the earthy tones from the button mushroom are a home run.
2006 Muga Tempranillo, Prado Enea, Gran Reserva, Rioja, Spain
Pairing Notes: This Producer is amongst the few that have their own cooperage. The wines are aged for three years in barrel and then three years in the bottle. This Tempranillo is loaded with ultra-fine tannins, vanilla, tobacco, plums and prunes. It is a perfect combination to the mixture of tomatoes and mushrooms.
2015 Taille Aux Loups Chenin Blanc, Moelleux, Montlouis Sur Loire, France
Pairing Notes: Chenin is a truly diverse grape, and here we get to enjoy it in its sweetest form. Dessert wines are never on anyone’s radar but this is a knockout. Sweet fleshy fruits that will go hand in hand with the dense coconut cake and flutter alongside the peach compote and coconut sorbet. Cheers!
