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...

How are you celebrating La Paulée Burgundy Week?

We will offer a number of festive white and red burgundy additions by the glass during this period.
