THE OL' SPIGOT Rhone Meridionale Winemaker Dinner
with Julien Latour, Proprietor, Domaine de l'Espigouette
TUESDAY, May 21, 7:00 pm
|at THE FILLMORE, 7954 Ann Arbor St., Dexter|
Domaine de l'Espigouette and its wines were discovered for us by JC Mathes, Professor of Technical Writing at the U of M's Engineering School. JC had an office near the corner of East University and South University, just a couple of blocks down the street from the original Village Corner location. He was a customer of long standing drawn to VC's wide selection of southern Rhone wines, before later becoming a supplier--not a unique change of roles over the nearly 50-year history of Village Corner.
Professor Mathes took to spending summers in the southern Rhone Valley and began to 'moonlight' as an importer of its wines. Proprietor Bernard Latour's wines were early favorites of ours. We nicknamed his Domaine de l'Espigouette 'The Ol' Spigot', because, year after year, I could count on his well of fine wines never running dry.
It's with great honor and pleasure we invite to our Ann Arbor Tasters Guild winemaker dinner series Bernard's son Julien, fourth generation of Latours in charge of this family-run estate. He'll bring along with the entire gamut of the domaine's wines. The Fillmore kitchen staff will have an opportunity to taste them shortly and to create a complementary menu. We'll post the menu and send out a email notice as soon as it comes our way. Here's the wine list, all wines grown, vinified, aged, and bottled by the estate.
