Fellow Wine Lover,

I wanted to start 2005 off with a bang, so here is my seventeen page opus covering the Top 100+ Wines of the Century event last October. I hope you enjoy reading the notes and that it offers everyone the opportunity to experience the event somewhat themselves.

Per Se, Daniel and Cru

Reservations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis and are strictly limited

$17,500 per person

Year III is finally upon us, and we have assembled another once-in-a-lifetime assortment of the 20th Century’s finest and rarest wines for a culinary celebration unmatched anywhere in the world. The first two years each sold out so do not hesitate to make your reservation; we will be limited to 35 pours maximum, served from either two bottles or a magnum. Due to popular demand we have limited the actual number of wines a bit this year’s actual total will be somewhere around 85 wines, but the ‘Top 100’ concept remains the same, and we have tried to outdo last year’s selections accordingly! Shared pours are available for an extra $500 per person per meal. Reservations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis and only confirmed upon payment. There will be no refunds for this event unless the event is sold out, and we are able to find a replacement. Wines subject to change, and changes, if any, will be minor.
