C’Est Burgundy—Part I: The Wines of the Côte de Beaune
Featuring the Portfolio of Becky Wasserman
With Guest Speaker Robert Wormser of Importer, C’Est Vin
Please join Tasters Guild Washington DC, and Circle Wine & Spirits, on Thursday, November 19, for an evening exploring the wines of Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune appellation, and featuring producers from the incompara-ble portfolio of Le Serbet / Selection Becky Wasserman.
Burgundy is the old France, where the past lives in concert with the present. Historic chateaus, miles of straight Roman roads and magnificent churches are a constant reminder of Burgundy's heritage. Burgundy is a land of culture, countryside, fine food and wine. A land where life is relaxed and enjoyed. The area is rich in culture, history, gastronomy and world-famous wines, and is renowned for its warm hospitality and inimitable knack for enjoying life. Familiar names like Beaune, Meursault, Corton-Charlemagne and Montrachet evoke the tradi-tion and "joie de vive" of the region's top wine growers, where love of wine is so much a part of daily life. Passing old honey-colored stone houses and ancient walls along the quiet, winding wine roads, gives the impres-sion of having gone back in time. The vineyards of the Côte de Beaune region, planted upon open, rolling valleys with southeastern exposures, inform Burgundy’s most-stunning Chardonnays as well as a bevy of Pinot Noirs that range in style from open and charming to altogether powerful and profound.
Joining us this evening to share his insights about the wines and the people who make them, is Mr. Robert Wormser of C’Est Vin, whose company is privileged to be importer and distributor for the Le Serbet Portfolio in Washington, DC.
Accompanying the wines is a wonderful menu prepared for us by executive chef Marjorie Meek-Bradley and wine director Danny Fisher of Ripple, in Cleveland Park, DC. Sign-up form, menu and list of wines, as well as more about Becky Wasserman are at link below. We look forward to seeing you at this special wine dinner.
