Exceptional Wine Tasting Eve | Friday, November 23rd, 2018
A moment of friendly exchanges between food & wine lovers, to discover the Great Wines of Nothern Côtes du Rhône !
Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Hermitage, Saint-Joseph, … are recent appellations compared to those of Burgundy or Bordeaux, and they are not subject of any official hierarchy (neither grand, nor premier cru on the labels) .
Nevertheless, these vineyards of the northern Rhône where Syrah, Viognier and Marsanne reign, have experienced these last thirty years an incredible renewal. The exploitation of the slopes and the qualification of the staff in the vineyard -and in the cellar- have to do a lot, certainly, but do not explain everything: it is necessary to go off to discover the terroirs themselves to better understand the rise of these wines .
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”.
