Spotted this last week and if you’re a fan of Burgundy then you probably want to go to this. Drouhin are one of the leading producers in Burgundy.
The current generation and guardian of the Drouhin style, Veronique Drouhin, is in Dublin this Thursday and is hosting a winemaker dinner, in association with The Irish Times, in The Merrion Hotel on Thursday evening – 6 October, 7.30.
Veronique Drouhin also manages the latest project, making Pinot Noir in Oregon and it’s as good as its Burgundy counterpart (I’ve tried it a number of times). Goes to show that the hand of the winemaker is as important as terroir.
The meal has been chosen especially to accompany eight wines, including two vintages of the legendary Beaune Clos des Mouches Blanc, Le Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche 2004, Drouhin Oregan Pinot Noir and Grand Cru Clos Vougeot from the legendary 1999 vintage.
The tasting begins at 7.30pm and costs €120 per person. Includes aa three course meal, plus coffee.
Anyone interested in attending should register on www.irishtimes.com/winetasting – where you’ll see the menu for the evening.
