The First Special Wine Dinner “Secrets de Cave”

Entitled “Secrets de Cave”, these dinners will introduce to the diner ‘Tomorrow’s star Bordeaux wines,’ fine wines that are as yet not widely known; and our navigator will be Gérard Margeon, chef/sommelier of the Alain Ducasse Enterprise. Gérard Margeon travels around the world visiting wine producers; which are the Bordeaux wines he considers really ought to be tasted right now? What about the mariage between the wine and the cuisine? Enjoy “Tomorrow’s star Bordeaux wines’ with cuisine providing the best possible mariage, interspersed with the kind of special talk only a sommelier of world renown can give; hear him talk not only on the special properties of the terroir and the varieties of grape, but also on the producers’ thoughts regarding wine production; listen to previously unrecounted anecdotes from the world of wine, and his thoughts on the new relationship between the wine and the food.
