Springtime Lunch Cocktail
has arrived ! The
vines have awakened from their winter sleep; the sun is shining again nurturing
the first spring vegetables, soon to be transformed into fresh and delicate
dishes. To rejoice in the arrival of Spring, the Maison Joseph Drouhin is
offering a lunch cocktail, to be served in our cellars; the oldest in Beaune,
where we will be pairing some typical spring dishes with some 1er
crus from Burgundy.
What could be nicer to
celebrate your Easter weekend than an exceptionnel wine ! For this event we have selected 6 emblematic wines of our house, all
classified as Premier Crus (3 whites and 3 reds), which marry perfectly with dishes
traditionally served at Easter. The morning will consist of a tour of our
cellars dating from the 13th and 15th centuries.
Following this we enjoy a chic and convivial cocktail lunch in our historical
cellars formerly belonging to the Dukes of Burgundy and the Kings of France. To
illustrate this sensory experience the following food and wine pairings will be
premier cru 2011
of asparagus mousse with crayfish
Chassagne Montrachet premier cru Clos-St-Jean 2011
