French Wines & Pairings - November 30, 2022

We're going to have a wonderful opportunity to explore French wines paired with French food specialties at a boutique featuring the delicacies of l'Hexagone!

This tasting event will be held in French and Italian, guided by an expert from the boutique who will help participants explore the origins and flavours of each selection. First off, a Pouilly Fumé 2020, cuvée “Arrêt Buffate,” a fresh and mineral sauvignon from the Tine Blondelet winery, will be paired with a plate of mild goat cheeses. Next, a young yet strong and complex Gigondas 2011, cuvée “Grand Romane” by Domaine Pierre Amadieu, aged 10 years to develop its aromas reminiscent of woodlands and spices. It will be matched with a selection of aged cheeses. Finally, an incredible blend of six indigenous grape varieties will be encountered in the Margaux 2016 cuvée “Quintessence” by Chateau des Graviers. Its broad range of complex aromas and long persistence will be savoured with some pâtés.

Please note that this event is limited to 12 participants, so book soon!
