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.
2015 Catena Alta Chardonnay, Mendoza, Argentina
Pairing Notes: Coming from the famed Catena Zapata estate that was founded in 1902, this could easily be mistaken for a white burgundy. The wine shows white fruit notes of peaches and pears, with a hint of citrus. What makes it truly special is the crisp, mineral acidity complementing the Butter Snapper, Corn ‘Gnocchi’, and Corn Jus.
MV Ruinart Brut Rose, Reims, France
Pairing Notes: For your Steak Tartare, this bubbly is loaded with white raspberry and strawberry fruit. It has a silky texture to finish. It is composed of 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay and comes from premier cru vineyards throughout the Champagne region. Ruinart is the oldest Champagne house, dating back to 1729.
2012 Edmond Cornu Pinot Noir, Vieille Vigne, Aloxe Corton, Burgundy, France
Pairing Notes: The Cornu family has roots dating all the way back to 1875. It wasn’t until 1959 that they started bottling their own fruit. This wine is rustic and earthy with notes of forest floor and mushrooms. It has an incredibly complex finish, meaning the flavors last and linger paying homage to the Pekin Duck Breast.
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.
2008 Chateau d’Arlay Savagnin, Vin Jaune, Cotes du Jura, France
Pairing Notes: The pairing for your Apple Gallette is a tad unconventional. This wine spends six and a half years in a barrel, under a film (known as flor) of local yeasts. This Vin Jaune, or Yellow Wine, is dry and shows notes of walnuts, hazelnuts, and toasted bread. While untraditional, it is beautiful alongside the final Act.
