Gourmet Wine Dinner - ‘Clash of the Titans’ Burgundy and Bordeaux

September 25

“Burgundy makes you think of silly things, Bordeaux makes you talk of them and Champagne makes you do them”.
Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin,
French gastronome, (1755-1826)

Wine lore has it that Bordeaux is more for beginners; a drink you enjoy before your palate is quite fully mature and you learn to understand the exquisite beauty of Burgundy. Bordeaux is said to be cerebral; the algebra, the musical theory, the astrophysics and the essay. Burgundy, meanwhile, is a scintillating flare of emotion and pure being that eclipses thought like the sound of an operatic aria
or the sight of the northern lights (without the technical explanation of why they appear).

Executive Chef Sean Cousins and Sommelier Martha McAvity pair these classic French wines against traditional old and new world
ingredients in a six course gourmet dinner in the Georgian Room.

Reception 6:30 p.m.
Dinner 7:00 p.m.
