Sit Down Dinner     Tasting (sit down)     Wine    

You are cordially invited to join us on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at 6:30pm for an evening of wine, food, fun and festivity featuring eight Burgundy wines of Jean Claude Boisset.
In 1961, a tenacious eighteen-year-old, Jean-Claude Boisset founded his namesake négociant winery in Nuits-St.-Georges. An artisan Burgundy producer with an audacious, authentic style, the winery is housed in a former Ursulines convent where Winemaker Grégory Patriat strives for authentic wines that are naturally expressive of their terroirs. Today his wines are considered to be amongst some of the best in Burgundy. His Clos de La Roche Grand Cru 2012 was voted World’s Best Red Wine at the International Wine Challenge and will be on-taste at this special event.
A welcome reception with seasonal canapés will be followed by a guided tasting of Premier Grand Cru red Burgundies to be followed in turn by a sumptuous Burgundian dinner created by Chef Jacques, including “tales of yore, singing and much merriment” according to our presenter, Neil Ruane. Neil is the export director for the Boisset Collection and he will guide us through the magic and history of one of the most fascinating wine regions in the world.
