- Grand Boisset Burgundy Wine Tasting and Dinner Featuring Neil Ruane
November 19, 2020
6:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Please join us Thursday, November 19th at 6:00 PM, for a guided wine tasting and dinner featuring the fine Burgundies of Jean-Claude Boisset. In 1961, Boisset founded his namesake négociant winery in Nuits-St.-Georges. 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 among the best in Burgundy. One of the wines we will be tasting is his Clos de La Roche Grand Cru 2012, which was voted World’s Best Red Wine at the International Wine Challenge. Neil Ruane, export director for the Boisset Collection, and our very own “Napoléon” in all of our Bastille Day Celebrations will lively guide us through the magic and history of one of the most fascinating wine regions in the world, before he returns to France on his final wine dinner with us. Neil returns to France on December 1, so this delectable and lively Experience will be very special send-off with amazing wines, and good fellowship, indeed. Bravo Neil and Merci!
A reception featuring seasonal canapés and Crémant de Bourgogne will be followed by a guided tasting of Premier and Grand Cru red Burgundies, to be followed in turn by a sumptuous Burgundian dinner created by Chef Jacques.
