100 VIGNERONS Wine Importer Dinner
with Carl Moberg, District Manager, Louis/Dressner
TUESDAY, June 19 at 7:00 pm
Yes, 100 plus. That‛s how many winegrowers Louis/Dressner represents, mostly from France but also from Italy, Germany, Portugal, Croatia, Slovenia, and Chile. They‛re small, artisanal, hands-on ‛vignerons‛. They don‛t intervene, they don‛t manipulative. They let their vineyards tell the story. The firm‛s principals (Louis is a Burgundy native) spend nine months a year in Europe working with their growers and hand-selecting wines for the portfolio.
In Robert Parker‛s Wine Advocate, in Vinous Media, in Wine Spectator and other leading wine publications, Louis/Dressner‛s growers and their wines read like a Who‛s Who list, replete with 90+ ratings. I‛ve selected the wines below for our June dinner..
While the restaurant formerly known as Terry B‛s has a new look and new menu, the crack kitchen team lead by Executive Chef Adam Boonstra (a Dexter native) showed us April 17 that it hadn‛t gotten rusty over the weeks the establishment was closed for renovations. It was one of the best of our decades-long dinner series there regardless of name and ownership. Presented with samples of my selections, the team will put together another memorable menu, which we‛ll post on the VC website and inform you all by email as soon as it‛s ready.
HERE'S THE MENU AND WINE LIST
Salmon Crudo, Smoked Pear, Micro-Green Salad
Scallops, Strawberry Bisque, Basil Syrup, Wine Cream Sauce
House-Made Sausage, Tomato Coulis, Roasted Peppers, Basmati RIce
Duck, Bread Pudding, Goat Cheese, Brandied Cherries, D 'Oupia Demi Glace
Raspberry Ice Cream, Ganache Swirl, Crack Sticks
