|Grand Cru Burgundy Lunch At Boneta
Only 33 vineyards have the privilege of being classified as "Grand Cru". They are truly the finest vineyards in Burgundy, and produce some of the best wines in the world. To many aficionados, they are the true pinnacle of wine. Grand Cru Burgundy represents a mere 2% of all the wine produced in this world class wine region and vintage after vintage, almost every drop of wine produced is sold, making them some of the most scarce and expensive wines in the world. This is a very rare and exquisite opportunity to taste a selection of these highly sought after wines. From Chablis to the ultra-famous (and rare) Montrachet, we will be showcasing a wide range of Grand Crus.
We'll be pouring the following wines:
Domaine des Malandes 2009 Chablis "Vaudesir"
Domaine Servin 2009 Chablis "Les Clos"
Domaine des Lambrays 2006 Clos des Lambrays
Domaine des Lambrays 2008 Clos des Lambrays
Domaine d'Eugenie 2007 Clos de Vougeot
Clos de Tart 2007 Clos de Tart
Domaine Bonneau du Martray 2009 Corton Charlemagne
Maison Joseph Drouhin 2009 Montrachet "Marquis de Laguiche"
* wines subject to change without notice.

2009 Terrazas de los Andes Cabernet Sauvignon - $19.90
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva spent 12 months in barrel. Notions of cedar, earthy minerals, spice box, tobacco, and black currants inform the nose of a savory, smooth-textured, nicely proportioned wine with excellent grip and length. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.88 points"
- Jay Miller, The Wine Advocate #198
2010 Terrazas de los Andes Torrontes - $19.90
"The 2010 Torrontes Reserva is sourced from Cafayate. It offers up a captivating nose of mineral, peach, mango, and pineapple, leading to a crisp, dry, impeccably balanced wine that will serve well as both an aperitif and with savory courses. Torrontes does not get much better than this. Drink this outstanding value over the next 12-18 months. 90 points"
- Jay Miller, The Wine Advocate
