A top-quality Chardonnay tasting combined with a Food & wine pairing lunch (*Michelin) in The Grand Sofitel in Amsterdam.
Adresse: The Grand Sofitel Amsterdam, Oudezijds Voorburgwal
Organisator: Job de Swart & Anja Vondenhoff
Kosten: 75 euro for Weinakademiker
Kosten für Mitglieder: 75
We are going to enjoy 12 impressive dry white wines. The selection varies from subdued and highly refined to extravert and impressive, but all of a Burgundian Premier Cru level or higher. In addition to a number of top performers from the Les Généreux portfolio, we are also going 'to cheat' on their range with some other legends from both the new and old world. This puts the tasting in an even broader perspective. Since one becomes hungry after such a spectacle, we will continue with a wonderful lunch at Restaurant Bridges (1 star Michelin).
Richard Kershaw MW from Kershaw Wines, Elgin South-Africa will fly to the Netherlands especially for this tasting. One or two of his wines will be in the line-up. His vision on the production of chardonnay will definitely be reviewed. In addition, oenologist Gerhard Horstink will also provide the wines with context. In short, all the ingredients are present for a very special event.
