October 4th 2016 : Tasting dinner with Maison Louis Jadot

marquet-louis-jadot-2016

At Marquet, we have been thinking for a long time about a new dinner-event similar to those we have been organizing lately. But this time we wanted to prepare something special that would be much more closely linked to our more than 40 years of history. After giving a lot of thought, we believed that there was no better idea than to pay a tribute to Maison Louis Jadot, one of the houses with which we have worked the most all these years and in which we find many of the values that we always seek in the products we offer you: tradition, rigor and quality.

Founded in Beaune, in the heart of Burgundy, in 1859, Louis Jadot has produced exceptional wines that they have promoted around the world. It is one of the most recognized dealers by both wine professionals and by amateurs, with more than 225Ha in the Mâconnais, the Côte d’Or and the Beaujolais, covering most of the appellations of the great Burgundy wine culture. The Maison Louis Jadot cares about its productions with the utmost rigor, whether they are a small regional appellation or a “grand cru”,  so to maintain the diversity of the wines of Burgundy and to ensure the sustainability of their “Climats”. A mission that fully coincides with the will of Marquet and in which we met in 2015 to support the UNESCO declaration of the “Climats de Bourgogne” as world heritage.

For the dinner that will take place on October 4th, we have been advised by Anthony Ravat, oenologist and Louis Jadot’s sales manager for France, who will also be present at the dinner to comment the chosen wines. These are 3 white and 2 reds, very representative of the diversity of the Burgundy’s wine production diversity.

We will start with a Bouzeron 2014 White, made at 100% of Aligoté, an ancient variety that was already cultivated in the region during the seventeenth century, and that will go along  with oysters Spéciales Gillardeau No. 3 as appetizer. We will continue with a “pâté en croûte” that is going to be served with a Marsannay “Clos du Roy” 2013, a Pinot Noir, Burgundy’s most common red variety, but that in this climat in particular has an exceptional quality which makes it a candidate to be soon a future “premier cru”. We will have after a sole with sauce “beurre blanc” and almonds to is going to be accompanied by a Santenay “Clos de Malte” 2014, a mineral Chardonnay that combines perfectly with this type of fish dishes. For the meat, that is going to be “pluma ibérica”, we thought of a Morgon “Côte du Py” 2011. This is an extraordinary Gamay, which has enough qualities to be a wine for aging and that surprises with its complexity and depth. And finally, the assortment of cheeses Xavier will be partnered with a Rully 2014, another Chardonnay which is cared for as a great wines of the Côte d’Or and that unites delicacy with powerful fruity aromas.

The price per person for this exceptional evening, which will take place at Marquet Gourmeterie in Plaça Coprinceps, is 50€.
