Dear Friends and Wine Lovers,

All indications are that 2005 will be one of the greatest Burgundy vintages ever. This sentiment has been echoed by every grower. The talented Bernard Raveneau stated, "...2005 is a great vintage in Chablis, one of the best. There's balance and harmony between the fruit, acid and mineral." While Nicolas Potel the negocient and winemaker simply declared it, "...a classic vintage."

The critics are enthusiastic as well... Alan Meadows the editor of Burghound the influential Burgundy newsletter raved, "2005 is quite simply the best top to bottom vintage that I have ever seen, period, full stop." Bruce Sanderson Wine Spectator's Burgundy specialist concurred saying, " is simply the best young vintage I have tasted in my 17 years working in the wine business."

As we wrote in this newsletter a few weeks ago, we were initially skeptical of the hype but after tasting the 2005 vintage ourselves we were completely won over. We have also noticed increased interest from our customers. The whites are starting to hit the market so we are putting every 2005 white Burgundy on sale to allow you the opportunity to sample the magic of this special vintage.

How to Taste Wine Seminar
Wednesday, March 28th from 6:30-8:00pm - $60

This seminar will reveal a few fundamental techniques that can dramatically increase your drinking pleasure. Tasting wine involves three senses (sight, smell and taste) that identify four primary components (sugar, alcohol, acid and tannins). Once you develop the skills to distinguish those elements a whole new world will open up as your senses will be heightened and you will be able to communicate more eloquently about the flavors you taste.

All wines will be tasted blind for this seminar which will be taught by Yannick Benjamin, who finished 2nd in the "Best Sommelier in America" competition (but first in the blind tasting segment) a few weeks ago. During his preparation for this very prestigious contest, Yannick trained every Saturday in our shop with some of the most talented sommeliers in the country... Learn to taste without any preconceptions.

For reservations call us on 212-924-6999 or e-mail Andy.

Event Cancellation Policy...
Payment is required in full at time of reservation to guarantee a seat. Cancellations received less than two weeks but more than five days prior to each seminar will be refunded with store credit only. Cancellations received within five days of each seminar will not be refunded.
