|“B&B” Burgundy & Bordeaux
|Thursday May 25th 2017, 6.45 Reception, 7pm Dinner|
|Greetings from Cobalt Grille,
We had had much success with recent offerings from France, so once again we head over the pond;
specifically to the regions of Burgundy and Bordeaux.
Burgundy (Bourgogne in French) is an historic and highly respected wine region in eastern France. Burgundy wines have long had devout followers throughout the world and continue to do so today. Although Bordeaux produces about four times as much wine every year, Burgundy’s estimated 74,000 acres of vineyards are considered to be of equal importance, producing some of the most exclusive wines on Earth.
Bordeaux, in the south-west of France, needs little introduction to anyone with an interest in wine. One of the world’s most prolific wine regions, it also manages to rank among the most famous and prestigious. The secrets of Bordeaux’s wine success are its three trump cards: diversity, quality and quantity. The majority of Bordeaux wines are the dry, medium-bodied reds that made the region famous. The finest (and most expensive) of these come from the great chateaux of the Medoc, particularly those in Pauillac and Margaux, and from the “right bank” appellations Saint-Emilion and Pomerol.
So please join Sommelier Arden Allen (French Student), Chef Alvin Williams (French style cook) and Jean-Francois Deschamps (French Dude) of Monsieur Touton Selections for this fantastic 6 course Food & Wine pairing.
