Exceptional Wine Tasting Eve | Friday, February 1st, 2019
A moment of friendly exchanges between food & wine lovers, to discover the Great Wines of Alsace & Jura !
The Alsatian vineyard is a long 170 km long ribbon, located at the foot of the Vosges mountains. The numerous sinuosities of the relief and the variety of soils allow Alsace to propose a vast range of wines, dry and soft, tranquil and effervescent. But thanks to its mild and cool climate, the main asset of the vineyard lies in the optimal ripening of the white grapes, pinot noir being the exception. The identification of wines by their variety – Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris … – is one of the other specificities of Alsace, as well as the presence of Grand Cru.
The vineyards of Jura – on the other side of the Saone Valley than the Upper Burgundy – occupy the slopes that descend from the first plateau of the Jura Mountains to the plain on an 80 km long strip. The most favorable soils are on slopes between 250 and 400 m altitude. Planted with local grapes and others from Burgundy, these soils gives atypical wines, like the famous Vin Jaune, Vin de Paille or Macvin.
Patrick Louette – Sommelier of Cazaudehore, supported by Thierry Lacroix – Collector and Breeder of rare wines, as well as some winemakers of this territory, will share with you their passion. They will make you discover unknown wines, revisit renown classics or awaken your taste for confidential appellations.
For the exaltation of your taste buds to be complete, a 5-course Gastronomic Menu, designed around noble and seasonal products by the Chef Grégory Balland, will accompany the bottles presented in a perfect Food & Wine pairing. For more conviviality and exchanges, it will be served as a “table d’hôte”.
