An Evening to Rediscover the Treasures of Burgundy
Nicolas Le Restaurant

Dear Members,

“Who can fail to be entranced? Here is a wine which can sing like a nightingale, shine forth like a sapphire, intrigue like the most complex of chess problems and seduce like the first kiss of someone you are just about to fall in love with. Moreover, great Burgundy can inspire like a great orator, satisfy like the most subtle of three-star meals, and leave you at peace at the end like the slow movement of a Mozart piano concerto. At its best the wine is complex but not puzzling, profound but not didactic, perfect but not intimidating, and magnificent but never anything less than friendly.” Clive Coates MW

For the month of October 2015, we are pleased to be rediscovering top names and hidden jewels of the Puligny-Montrachet and the classic Cote de Nuits Appellations. This will include amongst others, Le Montrachet and Chambertin Grand Cru wines and a Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru from the renowned Domaine Georges Roumier.

We are fortunate to have Guy Butterwick, founder and owner of Claret-e in London, share his in-depth and intimate knowledge of the burgundy wines and the people making the wines with us. Guy who has been in the wine business for over 25 years, started his career as a buyer for large houses such as Majestic Wines and Morgan Classic Wines where he developed his wealth of knowledge of Bordeaux and Burgundy wines. He founded Claret-e 15 years ago and has built a reputation for offering the best wines from the classic regions of France at the best possible prices. His cousin, Toby Butterwick, runs the Singapore operations.

These magnificent wines will be paired with the traditional French cuisine of Chef Nicolas Joanny. Originally from south of France, Nicolas graduated from the renowned Culinary Institute in Burgundy, Chateau Chinon and started his career in a 2-Michelin Star restaurant, "La Barbacane Restaurant", in the southwest of France. He subsequently moved and worked in top-notched restaurants such as La Cusine Des Anges (2-Michelin Star) in Belgium, Taillevent (3-Michelin Star) and Le Vivarois (2-Michelin Star) in Paris and The Palazzo Sasso (2 Michelin Star) in Southern Italy. He was also one of the private chefs of the ex-French Prime Minister, Mr Alain Juppe. Nicolas’s style of cuisine is traditionally French with great usage of products from the Provence. No Cream, just natural jus and emulsion. He understands and respects the natural flavors of each ingredient that he uses to create his outstanding menu.

We are grateful to Guy and Toby Butterwick of Claret-e for making this event possible.

Members will have priority over guests during the first 48 hours after the sending out of this Bulletin. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
