Dinners and Tastings

Old Grand Cru Burgundy Dinner 1976-1953 at Matilda. Monday 27 May 2019. $895.00 Per Person
27/05/2019 7:00 pm

Finding aged Grand Crus has become very difficult (not to mention expensive) and I only have a small range of Grand Crus left from my French Cellar purchase.

 

I have assembled 8 wines from 1976 back to 1953. We have to remember 1976 is now 43 years old and the legendary 1959’s turn 60 this year! There are a selection of vineyards including Musigny and two each Clos Vougeot and Corton, arguably the Grand Crus that are the longest lived.

 

The 8 Burgundies will be complemented by Champagne to start, a couple of whites and an interesting, and very old, wine to finish. With wines like this running out I'd like to enjoy a serious pour so I am restricting the dinner to 8 people including myself.
 
The venue is Matilda in South Yarra.
