Dinners and Tastings

Domaine Jerome Castagnier 2018 Grand Cru Dinner. Thursday 18 November at Vesper. $529.00 per Person
18/11/2021 7:30 pm

Have you ever wanted to taste 10 serious Grand Crus?

Our 2018’s from Domaine Jerome Castagnier arrive next week.
After 18 months of on-again, off-again lockdowns it is time to do something very special.
Jerome produces 10 Grand Crus. Some, like the Clos de la Roche, Clos-St-Denis, Clos de Vougeot and Charmes-Chambertin are quite easy to proccure and we receive a good allocation each year.
However, at the other end of the scale there are a group of other wines that are very rare with just one barrel (less than 300 bottles) produced. We receive a tiny allocation of these. Chevalier-Montrachet, Grands Echezeaux and Chambertin Clos de Beze, all magnificent vineyards, fit into this category. In fact I don’t recall consuming a bottle of Castagnier Grands Echezeaux or Chambertin Clos de Beze from any vintage.

At this dinner we will open all 10 of the Castagnier 2018 Grand Crus. The dinner will be at Vesper on Thursday 18 November We will be in their lovely private room.


The wine list:


Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2018

Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru 2018

Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2018

Clos-St-Denis Grand Cru 2018

Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 2018

Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2018

Echezeaux Grand Cru 2018

Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru 2018

Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru 2018

Chambertin Clos de Beze Grand Cru 2018


I doubt this tasting has been done anywhere else in the world except perhaps in Jerome’s cellars. Several of the wines are so rare that he does not offer them for tasting even to his importers. We just accept our small allocation (which could be as little as 6 bottles) with pleasure.


The retail value of one bottle of each wine is just under $5200.00. 


I think this is a very special opportunity. Tasting 10 Grand Crus from one producer at a single sitting is something of a rarity especially when it includes some very hard-to-obtain wines.
