UPCOMING WINE EVENTS AT LE DÛ'S WINES...
We are pleased to announce another special winemaker dinner featuring...
The Wines of Terry Theise
Tuesday, June 5th at 7:00pm
Sapa - Ground Floor, 43 West 24th Street
No man has introduced Americans to more great wines than the legendary raconteur and wine importer Terry Theise. His quest for soulful, harmonious wines from small,
distinctive estates in Germany and Austria has raised the standards for the entire industry. Thankfully his contributions have not gone unrecognized, he was selected as
Importer of the Year by Food & Wine Magazine in 2005, Man of the Year by Wine and Spirits Magazine in 2001 and Robert Parker described him as "One of The Most
Influential Wine Personalities of the Last 20 Years" in Wine Advocate's issue 120. He is one of the most colorful figures in the wine business and we will be sharing the
outstanding 2005 vintage with him and three of his finest winemakers.
No discussion of German wine is complete without mentioning Weingut Selbach-Oster who have been producing precise, focused, age
worthy wines on their Mosel estate since 1661. Johannes Selbach their winemaker and director is a master of Riesling who was honored by Robert Parker in his book "The
World's Greatest Wine Estates." We are thrilled to announce he will be joining us for this dinner.
Schlossgut Diel is an elite, blue-chip estate producing scintillating terroir-driven Rieslings in the Nahe. "La Revue du Vin de France" chose
them as one of the best wineries outside of France. Armin Diel the proprietor is an outspoken maverick whose wines are full bodied but retain the food friendly elegance we
expect from German Rieslings. We believe these stellar wines will stay with you long after you enjoy this meal with the charming Caroline Diel.
With vineyards situated on the steeply terraced slopes around Langenlois, Weingut Bründlmayer is widely recognized as Austria's greatest
winery. Their Grüner Veltlliners are probably the best value in the world for great white wines and their Rieslings have structure, complexity and a voice all their own.
Representing Bründlmayer will be Thomas Klinger who has worked at the estate for many years.
For this dinner we chose Restaurant Sapa, where superstar chef Patricia Yeo has received raves for her stylish blend of French and Vietnamese cuisine. The sophisticated
balance of sweetness and acid in pan-asian food will be complimented perfectly by the off-dry German wines and the acidic brightness of Grüner Veltliner to create a night of
explosive and unforgettable flavors. We will also enjoy Sapa's stunning design which was created by AvroKO the design team which won the Outstanding Restaurant Design
Award from the James Beard Foundation in 2004.
We will announce the wines to be poured next week, but in the meantime here's the menu to whet your appetite...

Seaweed salad, cucumber ribbons, reduced orange emulsion
