Dinner with Louis-Michel Liger-Belair of
Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair
6:30 pm Champagne Salon Reception
Eleven Madison Park - 11 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10010
$3,750

While Louis-Michel Liger-Belair only created this domaine relatively recently in the year 2000, the Liger-Belair family has a 200 year history in Vosne-Romanée, having settled in the village when Louis Liger-Belair, a Napoleonic general, acquired the Château de Vosne in 1815. At its heights, the Liger-Belair family owned an astonishing 60 hectares in some of Burgundy’s most legendary appellations. The Liger-Belair holdings today are impressive, and Louis-Michel has generously provided a variety of vintages of some of his best wines for this very special dinner at three-Michelin-starred Eleven Madison Park. This will include horizontals of the superb 2011 and 2012 vintages from magnum, culminating in verticals of Reignots - one of Vosne’s finest Premier Crus - and the domaine’s patrimonial Grand Cru monopole, La Romanée. Paired with Chef Daniel Humm’s exquisite New York-influenced cuisine, this will be a spectacular celebration of one Burgundian family’s history and future.

After a reception featuring Champagne Delamotte and Les Pucelles 1er Cru 2011, the dinner will focus exclusively on Domaine Leflaive’s four Grands Crus, beginning with a four-vintage vertical of Bâtard-Montrachet, followed by examples of Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet and Chevalier-Montrachet. We will conclude with the impossibly rare 1999 and 1995 vintages of Montrachet. The wines will be paired with the sublime cuisine of Chef Daniel Boulud and guest Chef César Troisgros of Maison Troisgros in Roanne, France.  This is a chance to taste mature white Burgundies from some of Domaine Leflaive’s most triumphant vintages.
