Lauriane André and Jérôme Desprès, from Domaine des Terregelesses – Françoise André, are hosting a special evening of premier Côte de Beaune wines and fine food this coming April at Dublin’s Dax restaurant.
The dinner at Dax begins at 7pm on Tuesday 11th April, with Canapés and a Chorey-les-Beaune White “Tue-Boeuf” reception. Sit-down for dinner is at 7:45pm; Lauriane (and weather depending, Jérôme) will be presenting the wines during the dinner.
Burgundy contains three of France’s finest vineyards, and it is where the domain of Françoise André is found which includes the Grand Cru Corton-Charlemagne vineyard.
This family estate, managed by Lauriane André with the help of Jérôme Desprès, spans over 7.5 hectares around the Corton hill. Organic and Biodynamic, the estate lives according to the rhythm of the vines. It excludes all chemical products to preserve the true nature of the grape. Producer of a rich selection of wines, they are the first in Bourgogne to have claimed the appellation Chorey-Les-Beaune blanc and to have bottled it.
The single vineyard Pommard “Les Vaumuriens” once belonged to Coche-Dury, who put it up for sale five years ago and picked the Domaine Francoise Andre from many contenders as the new owners of this vineyard.
The wines are made from single vineyards, and on the night guests will also taste different vintages altogether, to show the wine’s ageing potential.
The fully inclusive open table dinner cost is €175 euro per person which includes six wines, canapés, and a four-course dinner created by chef Graham Neville and his team.
