La Paulée de Carlton

Scott Paul Wines has announced the 2nd Annual La Paulée of Carlton will be held Saturday, November 3, 2007. “La Paulée” is the name of the traditional end-of-harvest celebration in Burgundy as well as the name of one of Scott Paul’s signature cuvées of Pinot Noir. The tradition of La Paulée in Burgundy goes back hundreds of years, and began with individual wine growers celebrating the harvest with a party for their vineyard and winery crew. Over time it evolved into what is now the famous “La Paulée de Meursault,” wherein a few hundred top vignerons of Burgundy gather at the Chateau de Meursault each November for a harvest feast. Guests bring many treasured bottles from their cellars to share.

The day in Carlton will kick off with a Grand Tasting from 11 A.M. to 4 P.M. in the Scott Paul tasting room. The 2006 Scott Paul La Paulée and Audrey Pinot Noirs will be available as well as many great Premier Cru Burgundies. RSVP not required, but appreciated.

In the evening, beginning at 6:30 P.M. is the Grand Dinner. Seating is limited to 50 Pinot Noir lovers. In the spirit of La Paulée, guests are requested to bring a few special bottles of Burgundy or domestic Pinot Noir to share. Cost is $100 per person. Chances are you will learn a Burgundian drinking song as well. RSVP with Kelly at 503-319-5827 or
