Sommelier Haley Moore

Why do you love Burgundy?

"There is something magical about Burgundy. No other region can compare to the diverse range of styles or the pure expression of place. The wines are exceptional, the people kind and assiduous. It's the only region that keeps me coming back time and time again, always leaving me more intrigued and inspired."

What is your favorite Burgundy pairing?

"As far as Burgundy pairings go, I love to use the whites from Nuits-Saint-George, which are often made with a percentage of Pinot Blanc, with shellfish like lobster or scallops."

How are you celebrating La Paulée Burgundy Week?

"We will offer special by the glass pours at Salt House during Burgundy Week that will range in price and style."

Stevie Stacionis & Josiah Baldivino

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."

Josiah: "Like the Holy Grail, wines from Burgundy offer magical powers, eternal youth and ultimate happiness."

JosiahGlamourShot.jpg

What is your favorite Burgundy pairing?

Stevie: "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!"

Josiah: "2005 Coche-Dury Meursault-Perrieres and true friends."

Beau Rapier

What do you love about Burgundy?

For me Burgundy is all about the range. From humble Bourgogne wines and unknown villages to the most famous little parcels of vines in the world. The ability to study such a vast and well delineated collection of terroirs with predominantly just two grapes is amazing . . . oh and the wines happen to be delicious too!

What is your favorite Burgundy pairing?

So many! But lets do something simple like roast chicken with mushrooms (or truffles) and an earthy, mineral Beaune 1er Cru with 15ish years of age.

How are you celebrating La Paulée Burgundy Week?

Flatiron wines will be hosting a free consumer tasting with Paul Wasserman and some of his producers. We will also offer special Burgundy pours by the glass in our tasting room/wine bar and will be highlighting special bottles both for on premise and for the Gala Dinner.

What do you love about Burgundy?

It inspires conviviality! Where else can you visit a grower who makes three or four barrels of something and is happy to pour it for you? That, and the endless complexity of the wines from the region.

What is your favorite Burgundy pairing?

Hmmm, where to start? How 'bout Vosne Romanée and Oeufs en Meurette. I just wish more places in SF made this dish. In Burgundy I eat it nearly every day!

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.
