Some people feel the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek is losing its special-occasion edge. They may have loosened their tie, but they haven’t taken it off. Check out this blockbuster Fête du Bordeaux Dinner created by executive super chef Bruno Davaillon and the wine experts at Sigel’s. I only have the wine information at this point, the menu is in the works.
The Fête du Bordeaux Dinner will spotlight the 2012 vintage of some of the biggest houses in Bordeaux. Jean-Charles Cazes (Lynch Bages & Ormes de Pez), Lilian Barton-Sartorius (Leoville Barton & Langoa Barton),Frederic Faye (Figeac & Petit Figeac), and Jean-Michel Laporte ( la Conseillante) will be in attendance.
This from Sigel’s wine guru, Jasper Russo:
November’s event will be truly memorable as we highlight the 2012 Vintage, featuring for the first time wines from both the Medoc and the Left Bank appellations of Pomerol and St Emilion. We will be enjoying the wines of Léoville-Barton, Langoa-Barton, Lynch-Bages, Les Ormes de Pez, la Conseillante and Figeac, along with the an incredible group of library vintages, all flown directly from the chateaus’ cellars.
The dinner, limited to 100 people, is November 5th t 7PM. Cost is $225 per person (tax and gratuity included). If you’ve got the money, do it. For reservations please contact: Jasper Russo ([email protected]) 972/685-2320.
