The wines of Louis Dressner are dear to our hearts. When Rue Cler first opened in 2006, our entire list was made up of wines from the LDM (Louis/Dressner/McKenna) portfolio. Their selections include growers who will be familiar to many of you, and whose wines we have championed over the years: Baudry, Texier and Pépière.
We are very pleased to welcome our dear friend, Josefa Concannon, the national sales manager of Louis Dressner, to host a dinner featuring some of our favorites from LDM. These are more than just wines for us: Joe Dressner and Denyse Louis were dear friends, and Joe’s passing from cancer in September 2011 was a personal blow… but, life evolves, and we maintain. Jules Dressner, Joe’s son, has become an integral part of the business, and the portfolio has never been stronger. While there are any number of LDM imported wines that excite us, we have chosen to go with a few of our best-loved, from our friends Frank Peillot, Marc Olivier, Matthieu Baudry and Eric Texier.
Wines to be featured:
Peillot Bugey-Montagnieu Pétillant Brut NV
Pépière Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine “Clos des Briords” 2016
Baudry Chinon “Clos Guillot” 2015
Texier St-Julien-en-St-Alban “Pergaud Vieille Serine” 2011
Roally Viré-Clessé 2015
This will be a special night, with great wines, and expert pairings from chef Todd Whitney. It will also be a chance (maybe the only chance in NC, for certain items) to purchase some fantastic bottles from Baudry, Texier and Pépière.
Seating is limited, so call us today at 919-682-8844 to reserve your seats.
We will ask for a credit card to confirm, and any cancellation made less than 48 hours prior to the dinner will incur a $40 fee per guest.
