Old French Wine Dinner header
Stunning Old Wines going back to 1927!
It has been quite a while since our last Old Wine Dinner. Late last year in one of our containers we received a lovely shipment of aged bottles from one of our French contacts. Most of the wines were from Burgundy but there were also some scarce bottles from elsewhere in France.
To my delight the bottles fell in to some interesting brackets which we will taste at this dinner. Included is a pair of Beaujolais Crus from 1964 (I have enjoyed quite a few aged Beaujolais and they become surprisingly like the Cote d'Or), Burgundy back to 1934 and a trio of aged Chateauneuf/Cahors, the oldest almost a 100 years of age. It is an increasingly rare opportunity to savour wines of yesteryear.

Buffet 2017 Dinner header

Domaine Francois Buffet 2017 Dinner at Oriental Tea House. Thursday 12 March 2020

Nine Premier Crus and more from the 2017 vintage!
Domaine Francois Buffet has certainly attracted the attention of our Burgundy clients. The first vintage we imported was 2016 and the wines proved tremendously popular - no doubt a combination of their inherent quality and seriously good prices.

Our 2017's are just about to arrive and I think it would be opportune to present the full range at a dinner. In 2017 we have not only the complete set of six 1er Cru Volnay but also the domaine's three 1er Cru Pommard.

There are not a lot of addresses that offer that selection. For those of you undecided about the 2017 vintage I urge you to come along. I have been drinking quite a few 2017's and I can tell you they are lovely. The style of the vintage will suit Buffet to a tee.

For those of you unfamiliar with the domaine it has a very long history with its origins dating back to 1692! The domaine and its 8 hectares of vines is run by Marc-Olivier Buffet, the eighth generation. 

This dinner will be in the private room at Oriental Tea House in South Yarra. Click here to see the room.
