For me the Burgundy region is about much more than wine. This region has a genuine history which make it a beautiful destination for everyone looking to discover the beauty of France.

www.craftrestaurant.com

Sommelier Patrick Bennett

Why do you love Burgundy?

I love most the kaleidoscopic expressions of climate, vintner, and vintage. No one wine, from one producer, from one site will ever taste exactly the same. You can learn the themes that consistently run through these wines but each year there is a whole new world of flavor and texture to discover.

What is your favorite Burgundy Pairing?

Super-lean, unoaked Chablis with oysters; white burgundy with local snails (or frogs legs) with butter, garlic and parsley; aged red burgundy with anything...

www.davidburkekitchen.com

Sommelier Marissa Copeland

Why do you love Burgundy?

I love the transparency of the Pinot Noir grape being expressed by makers who have learned their craft over generations of winemaking.

I love Chardonnay when it's stuffed with rocks and made to shriek a little---like Puligny-Montrachet, or stuffed with rocks and the bass is turned up like Corton-Charlemagne. Classics are classics for a reason.

What is your favorite Burgundy Pairing?

Volnay with mushroom risotto. I could eat this every day.
Beaujolais with charcuterie
Roasted chicken with herbs and cream sauce with Corton blanc.

How are you celebrating La Paulée Burgundy Week?

We are excited to delve into our large Burgundy collection to feature some of our favorites, such as Corton Charlamagne, by the glass with the use of our coravin. We intend to explore these great wines, that we would normally offer exclusively by the bottle, and to pour them alongside daily Burgundy inspired specials created by Chef Raoul Whitaker.

We offer a strong selection of French burgundies and bordeaux as the backbone of our list. Then we branch out into US and Italy and Spain with touches from other world regions. We also offer a fairly large wine by the glass selection (30 options).

Sommelier Cole Parry

Why do you love Burgundy?

Burgundy can seem very cognitive and opaque, an ivory tower so to speak, but beneath the myriad appellations and producers there are truly phenomenal wines, well made by wonderful people. Such bottles offer hedonistic delight for the casual drinker and lifetime aficionado alike, and that ability to surprise and give pleasure is what makes these wines such a pleasure to uncork.

What is your favorite Burgundy Pairing?

Young white Burgundy and rich, cheesy risotto

Burgundy to me, is elegant and exciting! I love the variation in every vintage. The expression of each year makes me appreciate the skill of the winemaker and the complexity of the terroir. A great year in Burgundy reminds me of a perfectly executed ballet; It's balanced, elegant and sometimes surprising, leaving us with lasting memories that may not be repeated again. I'm always excited to try the next new vintage in Burgundy. 

What is your favorite Burgundy Pairing?

Domaine Dublère, Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Les Chaumées 2013 is one of my favorite producers and pairs beautifully with our Nova Scotia Haibut with romanesco cauliflower, leeks, hen of the woods mushrooms, and verjus emulsion.

Sommelier Jeremy Noye

Why do you love Burgundy?

Just when you think you've gotten your hands and mind wrapped around it all, you uncover a new piece of information that takes you further down the rabbit hole.  An estate you've never heard of, now is the talk of the town.  Or the next generation of a property takes over and everything resets for good or bad.  Or a property sells or buys vines changing their range.  Crazy weather patterns occur, laws within the region change; or... . You get the picture.  There is always something to study and talk about when it comes to Burgundy.

What is your favorite Burgundy Pairing?

While Burgundy, white specifically, is my go to pairing for almost anything.  Epoisses and aged Chablis has been a bit of a passion for me the past year.

How are you celebrating La Paulée Burgundy Week?

Starting February 22, 2017 the Morrell Wine Bar will be offering a special Burgundy Only Wine List where all 25 selections are available by the glass, half bottle, full bottle or part of a tasting flight.  As in years past, pricing will be extremely sharp and selections will include names like Rousseau, Roumier, Ramonet, Raveneau and more.

Why do you love Burgundy?

Burgundy is one of the most complex, unique and diverse wine regions on the planet. What continues to fascinate me is the diversity of Chardonnay & Pinot Noir from village to village, producer to producer. No wine is the same, it's a constant learning experience. The wines themselves are so elegant & pure. I never get tired of tasting, drinking & learning more about all the regions of Burgundy.

Why do you love Burgundy?

I have finally accepted that Burgundy will never cease to astound me...  How did something like this ever come from grapes?!  There is no better perfume in the world than that of a perfect example of mature red Burgundy.  And the texture... it's beyond words to describe. Drinking Burgundy is much more an emotional experience than an intellectual one.  At it's best, Burgundy keeps me guessing -- that is what I love most about the region.

Sommelier Barry Tunnell

Why do you love Burgundy?

Burgundy produces wines that are among the most delicious Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs and Gamays in the world. These grapes act as the voices of the places in which they are grown, and centuries of work in the vineyards and domaines translate these voices into inimitable expressions of terroir. Good and great Burgundies are wines of rare beauty and unique essence.

What is your favorite Burgundy Pairing?

One of the great joys of Burgundy is how food-friendly and versatile the wines are with many cuisines. A favorite pairing at Tannin currently is Roasted Duck Breast with Butternut Squash, Pancetta and Cranberry Hash. It makes an excellent pairing with two reds that we currently feature by the glass from the Côte de Beaune: Nicolas Rossignol Bourgogne and Catherine et Claude Marechal Savigny-les-Beaune.

How are you celebrating La Paulée Burgundy Week?

Tannin Wine Bar & Kitchen features small production wines from producers that seek to share and express the uniqueness of their regions and sites.  We offer a seasonal lunch and dinner menu that compliments and enhances our wines.  The wine list changes frequently both to reflect the season and because many of the wines that we offer are very limited.  We typically offer 50-60 wines by the glass or taste, as well as seasonal feature flights, wine pairings and a substantialnumber of wines by the bottle.  Tannin also hosts a number of vignerons, wine makers and importers each year for special events including wine dinners, wine tastings and seminars.  Our aim is to make unique wines as accessible as possible while working to serve them in the best context possible.

Why do you love Burgundy?

Stevie: Burgundy is the first wine that ever demanded my full attention and left me compelled to seek more. There's something indescribably sexy, delicate and haunting about these wines that continues to seduce me.

What is your favorite Burgundy Pairing?

We're a retail shop but also have small, pre-packaged cheeses and meats, bread, chips, nuts, etc. Our favorite pairing is a bottle of Michel Lafarge Passetoutgrains with Trou du Cru cheese--it's washed with marc de Bourgogne, so basically a tiny, stinky Epoisses!

Why do you love Burgundy?

Even though Burgundy mainly produces two grapes the region is one of the most challenging to understand.
