We are excited to welcome Deb Lewis, and Vintage ’59, back to Rue Cler for another paired dinner. Last year’s Vintage ’59 dinner was truly outstanding, and we have an equally excellent line-up planned for this year. We’ve known Vintage ’59 founder, Roy Cloud, for over 20 years, going all the way back to our days in the wine business in the DC area. We’ve known Deb for nearly as long, and have an immense respect for her knowledge and palate.
The wines we’ve selected for this event are especially exciting. There’s the new release from Champagne Jacquesson, based on the excellent 2012 vintage. Jacquesson is a legendary house that continues to grow, stretch, and put out better and better wines. It is a treat to show a Burgundy from the outstanding 2015 vintage, particularly the gem of the Voillot holdings, Volnay Champans. We have the deep, intense Cairanne from Haut-Cances, where the vines are over 100 years old. The wines from Le Rocher des Violettes have been a revelation, and this time we get to pour the cuvée, from the oldest chenin vines.
As always, we’ve worked out an excellent menu tasting with Chef Todd Whitney, and the wines will be available for purchase, in limited quantities and at special prices, on the evening of the event. Rest assured, this will be an occasion that you won’t want to miss!
