Menu

Reception

International Cheese & Fruit Tray

Wine: Albert Bichot Bourgogne Blanc 2012 (retail price $19.99)

Wine of light yellow-green color. Simple nose with green apple and white flower accents. It also evokes subtle mineral notes. This dry white shows great freshness. It provides a soft mouth and a slightly finish.

First Course

Jonah Crab & Flounder Roulade, Lavender Buerre Blanc,Charred Lemon Drops

Wine: Albert Bichot Secret de Famille Chardonnay 2013 (retail price $25.99)

Elegant and refined aromas of tropical pineapple and melon plus toasted aromas showing oak spice and smoky touches. The palate is fresh and richly textured, with good integration of oak and fruit. It’s hard to see how a Bourgogne Blanc could be much better than this.

Second Course

Roasted Baby Beets, Brussels Sprout Toasted Fennel Slaw, Mozzarella, Cajun Candied Pecans, Aged Balsamic Gastrique

Wine: Albert Bichot Domaine de Jarnioux Beaujolais, 2012 (retail price $15.99)

Ruby red color.Delectable, fresh and typical nose with notes of strawberry and candy. The finale is long, refreshing and remains on fruit. This very convivial wine is the ideal companion for a meal with friends. Recommended with your cold cuts, Italian dishes, rabbit fricassée or with your savory tarts. You can also drink this at dessert, with a strawberry soup or a tiramisu. 100% Gamay.

Main Course

Thyme Dijon Lamb Lollipops, Gourgette Gratin, Choron Demi Glace

Wine: Albert Bichot Secret de Famille Pinot Noir, 2012 (retail price $25.99)

This Bourgogne Rouge wine has received good scores from various critics. Deep ruby red robe. The nose is fruit-dominated aromas of black currant and wild red fruit. Velvety and silky with a soft and well-balanced structure which leads on to a delicate red fruit-flavored finish

 

Dessert

Coppa Strawberry & Cream, Pistachio Gravel

Wine: Albert Bichot Cremant Rose, NV (retail price $27.99)

This sparkling wine has fine, even bubbles and a beautiful pink color with salmon pink highlights. It has blackcurrant, raspberries and a touch of strawberry on the nose. These aromas continue through onto the palate along with a pleasant burst of freshness and vivacity. While perfect on its own, its friendly nature also makes it appropriate for pairing with Mediterranean and Asian cuisines. 80% Pinot Noir, 11%Gamay, and 9% Chardonnay.
