"Every Tuesday, for the month of June, Iíll be
taking over the wine list at Rotisserie Georgette. My goal in putting
together my list is to first and foremost match and compliment the wonderful
traditionally styled French cooking on display at Georgette. It reminds
me of the French restaurants I first encountered when I moved to New York in
the 80s. Or, as Pete Wells said in his New York Times review:
'If this restaurant had a clock, its
hands would be stopped at five minutes before nouvelle cuisine, when meat was
carved to cover the plate and sauce came on the side and nobody turned down
potatoes, when people eating a roast with a good but not-too-expensive Bordeaux
could hardly imagine a better night out.'
My kind of place :)
But this is also an exciting opportunity to
introduce some of my favorite wines. From Chidaine in the Loire to Lopez
de Heredia Blanco from 2006, Elisabetta Foradori in Trentino to Steve
Matthiasson in Napa Valley, really this a chance for me to make the kind of
wine list I would be thrilled to discover.
And finally I just canít wait to be able to
get out there and talk with all of you. So much of our business at Le
Duís is done over e-mail and the phone so Iím really looking forward to being
able to talk wine with all of our great customers in person. Hope to see
you soon and cheers!" Jean-Luc Le Du
