With Gary Twining of Cutting Edge Selections
Sunday, July 15, 2018 • 6:00 pm
Join us Sunday, July 15, 2018, as we celebrate all things France for our annual Bastille Day Celebration. Joining us this year will be Certified Wine Educator Mr. Gary Twining of Cutting Edge Selections. We have known Gary for many years and he always brings knowledge and fun to wine events. Cutting Edge Selection was founded in 1995 in Cincinnati, Ohio. They have an outstanding portfolio of wines.
We begin the evening with a refreshing Rosé from Chateau Virgile. We will feature three white wines from classic growing areas. Our first white features a Premiere Cru Chablis from Domaine Servin a mineral-laced chardonnay from Burgundy. We couldn’t choose one or the other for the next white wine so we chose them both! We will feature a side by side comparison of two regions and two varietals Vouvray (Chenin blanc) from Laurent Kraft located in the Loire Valley and a Pinot Blanc from Albert Mann in Alsace, both outstanding and each unique.
Our first red of the evening hails from Burgundy the Beaune 1er Cru “Rouge” from Domaine Chanson Bastion, this pinot noir is always a crowd pleaser. Château Croix Cardinale in Saint Émilion and Chateau Boyd-Cantenac Josephine de Boyd in Margaux provide us with a unique side by side of two distinct grape blends of Bordeaux. The Guigals have been making wine in the Rhône Valley since 1946. We will feature a side by side tasting of Northern Rhône Valley (St. Joseph) versus the Southern Rhône Valley (Gigondas).
We end the evening on a sweet note with a Sauternes from Château de Rolland located in Sauternes·Bordeaux.Tapenade Provençale
