Domaine Francois Buffet 2017 Dinner at Oriental Tea House. Thursday 12 March 2020. $189.00 per Person
12/03/2020 7:30 pm

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 full range 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 Prahran.

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2018
Pommard 2017
Volnay 2017
Pommard 1er Cru Clos Micot 2017
