What:


We are thrilled to be able to offer you, our valued VIP customer, an amazing wine pairing opportunity. 

 

To start off, this event will include three elegant examples of Krug Champagne, about which Antonio Galloni (formerly of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate) said "Over the years many of the most monumental, mind-bending Champagnes I have had have emerged from these cellars in Reims."

 

Following two courses paired with two outstanding white Bordeaux, the meal moves in to side-by-side pairings that will truly showcase some of the most incredible producers from Bordeaux's famous Cab-centric Left Bank.  Each of these wines comes from wineries Parker has identified as "The World's Greatest" in his book of the same name.

 

On top of that, this event will be quite different from most of our wine tastings, as guests will have the opportunity to try two of the best and rarest vintages side-by-side, each course featuring a separate highly classified Bordeaux village with a unique flavor profile and style.

 

All the wines come from amazing and rare vintages: 1982, 1986, 1989, 1995 and 2000.

 

(1982 Was a 98 point Robert Parker vintage.  His article is below for your reference.)

 

WHAT ABOUT NOW? A NATURAL BEAUTY: THE 1982 BORDEAUX VINTAGE

Issue 102 - December 1995

“I cannot conceive of a credible argument against the fact that 1982 is the greatest vintage in Bordeaux since 1959 and 1961. In fact, 1982 produced more great wines than either 1961 or 1959. But no vintage can ever be viewed in black and white.  Keep in mind, quantities of 1982s still available are microscopic.”

 

A wine pairing dinner of this caliber would normally cost well over $1,000 per person.

 

This event will be a wonderful learning opportunity, providing in-depth comparison between both producers, villages and vintages, as well as engaging conversation and interaction with your fellow wine lovers.  Older Bordeaux have very distinct character, with far less overt fruit and incredible structure and depth.  This will be an experience that we truly want to share with you, our VIP Bordeaux lovers, in an evening not to be missed - and it will certainly sell out, so please respond immediately to be assured of a seat.

 

This dinner is only $396.99 per person (not including tax and tip).

We are offering this exclusive dinner as a thank you to our loyal VIP customers, so please be sure to RSVP right away.  This dinner will be held in the exclusive private wine dining room which has a very limited 20 person seating.
