Historic Rayas Vertical at Taillevent
15 Rue Lamennais, 75008 Paris, France
Friday, April 12th, 2019, Dinner 7PM
Rayas is more than Chateauneuf, being one of the most singular and unique wines not only in the Rhone, but in all of France. These stunning wines will humble even a great Bordeaux or Burgundy, and they are the finest expressions of low-yielding Grenache to grace the Earth. The late, great Jacques Reynaud was a mad scientist, creating spiritual wines that eschewed modern winemaking, and Taillevent remains legendary in the culinary pantheon of Parisian dining, serving as the benchmark for traditional French service. We hope to be joined by the reclusive Emmanuel Reynaud and are honored to host this historic Rayas vertical dinner at Taillevent.

Vintages of Chateau Rayas Chateauneuf-du-Pape will include: 1971; 1976; 1978; 1981; 1985; 1986; 1988; 1989; 1990; 1992; and every vintage from 1994 through 2009.
Grande Burgundy Finale Dinner at Tour d'Argent
17 Quai de la Tournelle, 75005 Paris, France
Saturday, April 13th, 2019, Dinner 7PM
Most wine connoisseurs have heard whispers of the hidden treasures within the cellar of La Tour d’Argent, and while some have been lucky enough to visit and enjoy a bottle or two with lunch or dinner, few have been able to have a dinner on the grand scale that we will make happen. This perfect French cellar has high humidity, chilly temperatures, and wines that have not moved since release which cannot be beat! If wines like Raveneau, Coche-Dury, Dujac, DRC and Rousseau tickle your fancy, then this will be a dinner for you. Who knows when this night will end!
