Roederer and Dim Sum - December 7th at 7pm, $125
Let’s put CA and Champagne to the test! We are going to pair Roederer’s CA sparkling with their “counterparts” from Champagne and see how they compare! I can’t wait!
"Champagne (and other sparkling wines) go so well with so many foods, they’re really a cheat code for food pairing. And one of my favorites to pair with them is dim sum. For instance, one of my favorite matches are pan-fried pork and cabbage dumplings with pinot-based Champagne. In fact, once I was touring Sonoma and stopped at a sparkling wine house just after we’d eaten dim sum in San Francisco. While we were tasting the Blanc de Noir, I stopped, ran to the car, and brought in the leftovers from brunch and we sat there with the winemaker reveling in how good they tasted together,"
"So, we thought it would be fun to do a sort of free-form wine dinner, bringing out an array of dumplings and other classic dim sum dishes, to be enjoyed with a series of Champagne and other sparkling wines. It will showcase the versatility of the wines as they’re all sure to match well, though I’m sure you’ll find certain bites and wines to match particularly well." Chef Charlie Deal

The Guigal domain was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal in Ampuis; a small, ancient village at the heart of the Côte-Rôtie appellation. It is overlooked by unique vineyards where vines and wine have been celebrated for over 2,400 years. Following his arrival in 1924 at the age of 14, the founder went on to make wine for 67 vintages in the Côte-Rôtie and, at the beginning of his career, took part in the development of the Vidal-Fleury establishment.
In 1961, a still very young Marcel Guigal took over management of the domain when his father was struck by temporary but total blindness. He was joined in 1973 by his wife, Bernadette and they worked hand-in-hand to expand the family business. In 1975, their son Philippe was born and today he is the domain’s oenologist. Together with his wife, Eve, he represents the third generation and continues the family’s lifetime endeavor to be at the service of the greatest wines of the Rhône valley.
They have continued to expand into the 2000s. At the same time and with the same spirit of passion and enthusiasm, the family selects, matures and sells wines from the greatest appellations of the Rhône valley.
