Why do you love Burgundy?

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.

How are you celebrating La Paulée Burgundy Week?

Gotham will be highlighting burgundy wines from February 27 through March 11th.  In addition to our extensive Burgundy section we will be offering additional Burgundy wines by the glass including village, 1er Cru and Grand Cru level in both red and white.
