“Mousse Légère aux Vichyssoise”

Course 2 - Seasonal Choice
“Poireaux Vinaigrette”
Marinated Leeks with Herbs, Vinaigrette of Prawns and Eggs Mimosa
Served with Pierre Sparr, Riesling "Schoenenbourg" Grand Cru, Alsace, 2017
91 Points, Wine Enthusiast
"Hayflower, dried apple peel and chalky earth create a quintessential Alsace Riesling nose. The palate is juicy in an apple flavor, with a pith-like texture on the streamlined body. The finish is dry." 

______________________________________________________________________________
Course 3 - Fish
“Limande Meunière”
Sand Dabs, Capers, Parsley and Brown Butter with Chanterelles and Potatoes Glazed with Lemon

Served with Domaine Leflaive, Mâcon-Verzé Burgundy, France, 2018

"If the blessed slopes of the Cote d'Or are home to the ultimate expression of Chardonnay, then Anne-Claude Leflaive could be regarded as the magician some might use the word "shaman" who can conjure wine like no other from this propitious terroir." — Vinous

______________________________________________________________________________
Course 4 - Entree
“Duo of Boeuf Bourguignon”
Red Wine Braised Beef Short Ribs and Prime Filet of Beef, Smoked Bacon, Carrots, Pearl Onions, Champignon, Whipped Potato

Served with Chêne Bleu, "Heloise" Southern France, 2011 (Biodynamic)

96 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
Brilliant stuff, the 2011 IGP Vaucluse Heloise (70% Syrah, 20-25% Grenache and the rest Viognier) offers lots of blackberry fruits, peppery herbs and smoked earth aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated, yet with an incredible sense of elegance and finesse, no doubt imparted by the limestone soils and higher elevation vineyards, this beautiful Syrah will continue drinking beautifully for another decade or more. 

______________________________________________________________________________
Course 5 - Dessert
“Tart Fine Aux Pommes, Sauce Terre et Mer”
Classic Apple Tart, Salted Caramel, Whipped Vanilla Crème Fraiche

Served with Royal Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos, Tokaj-Hegyalja, Hungary

"One of the greatest dessert wines in the world." — IB
