Please join Chef Jacques and special guest Julie Swift on Thursday, July 20 at 6:30pm to explore the fine German wines of Joh. Jos. Prüm and Weingut Bernhard Huber.
At every Chef Jacques’ Table event, Chef Jacques creates a special menu to accompany a slate of fine wines. Our special guest Julie Swift will share her wealth of knowledge about German wines and as she guides you through the selections for each course. Julie is the President of Invintive and specializes in international sales and marketing for the wine industry.
Described by World of Fine Wine as “one of the most important wine producers in Germany of the past 20 years” Bernard Huber’s small, family owned estate is famous for his Pinots, in particular his world class Pinot Noir but also his superb Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc.
The Prüm family have a history in German wine making that spans over 400 years. The Joh. Jos. Prüm estate came into being in 1911, when the family vineyards were divided into two, and has grown to become one of the region’s and country’s leading winemakers.
Please join us for the special evening of good food and delicious wines.
Chef Jacques’ Seasonal Canapés
CHARTA RIESLING Rheingau, Weingut Johannishof 2014
“This is racy and packed with mineral, yet remains light-bodied and crisp. Elements of grapefruit, tangy greens, green apple and stone are well integrated and balanced with the texture and structure. Mouthwatering finish”. Wine Spectator
Mousseline of Norwegian Salmon, Smoked Salmon Caviar, Beurre Blanc Sauce
Joh. Jos. Prum Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett 2015
Delicate aromas of peach and candied lemon. Glossy but quite firm for a Kabinett, this tastes more off-dry. The clean finish offers lime and discreet slate.
Delmarva Elephant Trunk Scallops, Citrus and Garden Sorrell Sauce
JOH. JOS. PRÜM GRAACHER HIMMELREICH SPÄTLESE 2015
This juicy and harmonious white, with a easy-drinking character, offers complex aromas hinting at violet, black currant and peach, while the flavors pick up apple and mineral notes, all capped by a long aftertaste echoing fruit, mineral and floral flavors. Wine Spectator 94 points
Grilled Lamb Chops, Garden Ratatouille
WEINGUT BERNHARD HUBER BADEN PINOT NOIR DRY 2014
This corresponds to the smallest of the range Pinot Noir from young vines that are between the ages of 3 to 11 years. Here already is “Green Harvest” performed and reduces the yield to about 65 hl / ha. Of this wine there is no such large quantities and is mainly sold to private customers in the narrow area.
Alsatian Apple Strudel, House-made Vanilla Ice Cream
Gillette’s Locally-Roasted Coffee, Selection of Harney & Sons Fine Teas
excluding tax and gratuity; for a total of $130.00
