Le Paulée de New York

The annual Le Paulé Burgundy tasting in New York City will be held March 3, 2007. It is a homage to La Paulée de Meursault, which has formally endorsed this celebration. Presented by Daniel Johnnes, the event includes a Grand Tasting from 12:00 to 3:00 PM ($250) and a Gala Dinner from 6:30 to midnight ($1400). The Grand Tasting restaurants are Bouchon, Café Boulod, Cru, D’Artagnan, Eleven Madison Park, Hearth, Ma Cuisine, Mai House, March, Rosewater, Telepan, and Veritas. The chefs for the Gala Dinner include Daniel Boulod (Restaurant Daniel, NYC), Michael Mina (Michael Mina, SF), Olivier Muller (DB Bistro Moderne, NYC), and Michel Troisgros (Maison Troisgros, Roanne, France).

This event is a marvelous opportunity to share the bonhomie of fellow Burgundy lovers, as well as a chance to meet elite winemakers and savor their wines. In 2006, sixteen Burgundy winemakers will be featured including: Domaine de L’Arlot, Domaine Bonneau du Martray, Domaine Bouchard Pére et Fils, Maison Champy, Domaine du Clos de Tart, Comte Armand, Domaine David Duband, Domaine Dujac, Domaine Geantet-Pansiot, Maison Henri Boillot, Maison Louis Jadot, Domaine Michel Lafarge, Domaine des Comtes Lafon, Domaine Matrot, Domaine Ballot-Millot, Domaine Méo-Camuzet, Domaine Mugneret-Gibourg, Domaine de la Pousse d’Or, Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey, Domaine William Févre, and Domaine de la Romanée-Conti.

In the true spirit of La Paulée, guests are invited to bring with them their own Burgundian wine treasures to share with the group. Les Cadets de Bourgogne, a troupe of traditional Burgundian singers, will serenade the attendees.

Robert Parker, Jr. has praised the event, saying “Any Burgundy enthusiast who does not jump at the opportunity to attend this event is crazy, as it is the dinner/tasting of a lifetime.” And Wine & Spirits remarked that Le Paulée is “...a chance to taste more great Burgundy than many taste in a year, or a lifetime… ” For reservations: 212-625-2519.
