HOUSE WINE PAIRINGS
$85 PER GUEST
MV Laurent Perrier Champagne, Brut, La Cuvée, Tours Sur Marne, France
Pairing Notes: We are thrilled to begin the evening with bubbles from one of our favorite houses. This wine is predominantly 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, peach, and lemon zest.
2016 Léon Beyer Pinot Gris, Alsace, France
Pairing Notes: This winery is one of the oldest Alsatian family owned estates, founded in 1580. It is currently in the 13thgeneration, with Marc Beyer. The palate is rich with notes of peaches and almond that settle well next to the Hawaiian Walu. The balanced acidity and long finish also complement the Beurre Rouge and Brussels.
2016 Frantz Chagnoleau Chardonnay, Les Raspilléres, Viré Clessé, Mâconnais, France
Pairing Notes: Frantz and his wife, Caroline, present us with this bright and delicious glass of wine. Certified organic farming practices coupled with minimal intervention in the cellar, produce truly stellar wines. Ripe peaches mingle with pears and a beautiful texture lends itself to the Crab Pot Sticker and Persimmon Beurre Blanc.
2015 Chanson Pinot Noir, Bourgogne, France
Pairing Notes: This domaine was established in 1750 as Maison Verry, a merchant company that made and sold wine. In 1847, Alexis Chanson purchased the remaining shares from the Verry family. And in 1999, the house changed ownership to Jacques Bollinger. The wine is laced with aromas of ripe black cherries and baking spice, perfect for the Pork Cheeks and Winter Squash.
2016 Le Macchiole Red Blend, Bolgheri, Tuscany, Italy
Pairing Notes: Le Macchiole was founded in 1983 by Eugenio and Cinzia. The vineyards have been farmed organically since 2002. That was the same year Eugenio passed and Cinzia continues to run the estate. The wine is a merlot based red blend that has complex notes of blueberry, blackberry, and a hint of lingering spice that is bound to make it a favorite with the Beef Tenderloin.
2012 Grand Enclos Late Harvest White Blend, Cérons, Graves, France
Pairing Notes: Giorgio Cavanna partnered with oenologist, Bertrand Léon, to establish this fantastic estate. The Ciron tributary provides moisture that allows Botrytis Cinerea to develop, concentrating sugar content in the grapes. It delivers a glass riddled with tropical fruit and juicy apricots that are rich yet elegant. It is magnificent with the Holiday Figgy Pudding.
