arrival wine

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.

first course

2016 Joseph Drouhin Chardonnay, Puligny Montrachet, Burgundy, France

Pairing Notes: The Drouhin estate has been around for 130 years and is currently in the hands of the fourth generation of the Drouhin family. Biodynamic practices are a part of vineyard management and the end result is a wine that is sure to be a treat. While lean and mineral driven, the wine is rich with flavors of white peach. It is perfection with the Butter Snapper and Corn Gnocchi.

second course

MV Laurent Perrier Champagne, Brut Cuvée Rosé, Tours Sur Marne, France

Pairing Notes: For your Steak Tartare, this bubbly is loaded with raspberry and strawberry fruit. It has a long lasting, dry finish. It is composed of 100% Pinot Noir and comes from ten cru vineyards throughout the Champagne region, including a handful of grand cru vineyards.

third course

2015 Machherndl Gruner Veltliner, Smaragd Kollmitz, Wachau, Austria

Pairing Notes: Erich Machherndl is the 8th generation owner of this estate that dates all the way back to 1786. The philosophy is a simple one, focus on tradition. This wine shows notes of orange citrus, white plum, and sage. The wine is full bodied and stands strong and proud with the Pekin Duck Breast.

fourth course

2015 Abbatucci Carcajolu, Valle di Nero, Corsica, France

Pairing Notes: If you ever get a chance to visit Corsica, you will find that you can’t get very far without hearing the name Abbatucci. For your Pork Filet and Tomato Beurre Blanc, we present this delightful wine that was brought back to life from near-extinction. It shows remarkable aromas and flavors of blackcurrants, blueberries, and herbs. The tannins are just soft enough to complement the dish.

dessert course

2010 Alienor Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc, Lune de Miel, Lake County

Pairing Notes: Alienor is a tribute to Aliénor of Aquitaine and to the substantive contribution she made to the fine wines of Bordeaux. The glass is loaded with aromas and flavors of honey, nectar, and ripe peach. This is a gorgeous companion to the Apple Galette and Toasted Oat Chantilly.
