Take notes kids.... never leave a forty something pound bottle of Meursault in the freezer over night because the cork pops and it freezes (who’d have thunk it?). Recovery mission means drinking it now the seal has been broken 🤪.... #meursault#stilldivine#ilovemeursault#favouritewine
#21 in our women winemakers this month is Caroline Frey of Chateau de Corton-Andre in Burgundy, France. Caroline has been around wine since she was a child, when her father purchased a champagne house. In addition to having the aim of making balanced wines for a younger generation, Caroline has always been interested in geology, nature and plants.
My husband, some friends and I visited Chateau de Corton-Andre, we enjoyed it so much we visited twice. Except the second time we got lost. Thankfully we remembered the glazed polychrome roof on the top of the Chateau and found our way to the repeat tasting.
July is the month we celebrate our freedom as a nation, so…obviously…Paul decided to celebrate this month by opening up a bunch of wines he really likes, really, really likes!
The July Legends Dinner will be taking place on July 26th at 7 pm at the Morris. Naturally, Chef Gavin will create a menu tailored to the evening and Paul is planning some additional surprises!
The cost for the July Legends Dinner will be $585 + tax per person and SF surcharge. Please contact the restaurant firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your spot. Thank you so much, we can’t wait to see you all!
What a wine dinner... some killer wines tonight. 57 Meursault fresh as the previous bottles we had, with honey, toast, caramel, floral notes. Mugnier style shone in this 98.. with his style showing perfectly through the vintage. DRC and Jean Gros messed with our head.. (or was that the somm)? But both showing incredibly well especially given the vintages. 67 Engel kicking some serious ass... opposite spectrum to the same wine we had yesterday (which was messed up to begin with). Italians all needed another few days of decant and 04 Engel CV finishing off the night in true class. I hate to call the a DRC as WOTN but this Richebourg showed sheer class, depth, complexity and finesse. Bramble, earth, dark fruit with a finish that was incredible. Not dissimilar to the 88 DRC RSV we had at Rekondo but with just a bit more oomph.
Last night chez @guysavoy I had the pleasure to savour two of my favorite #bourgogne of course #domainedescomteslafon was a delight.. so unexpectedly fresh, no thickness and provided honey aftertaste which completed its roundness. Often I would rather have chosen a Montrachet but emotionally I chose #meursault since it was my first découverte in bourgogne I felt the need to be brought back to where I started. #jeanetjeanlouistrapet was a rare pleasure since Jean Louis works without his father now, this was a historical bottle and therefore much appreciated, one of the most subtle #chambertin ever.. so tender it spoke to the heart and provided a great deal of positivity ❤️ it goes without saying these wines have lived for 600 years and can continue on for more due to their quality.
