Wine Dinner to Feature Bordeaux Estates

If you love Bordeaux, you won’t want to miss the L’Esprit Lafite wine dinner at Coohills in LoDo.

Esprit du Vin Fine Wine Merchants is hosting the dinner, which will highlight the Bordeaux Estates of Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) at 6:30 p.m on November 13.

With its roots firmly entrenched in the late 16th century, the Bordeaux-based Lafite has been synonymous with exceptional vintages ever since. The modern-day vineyards also have continually produced an outstanding series of vintages, many of which are still revealing their impressive attributes with age.

The evening will begin with Champagne Barons de Rothschild Brut, MV, and passed hors d’oeuvre at 6:30 pm followed by dinner at 7 pm.

The evening will feature Chef Tom Coohill’s ingenious ingredient combinations chosen specifically for seven of Lafite’s phenomenal offerings, which will include the Legende Bordeaux Blanc, 2016, poured with the appetizer of crayfish gratin “Fernand Point,” augmented with truffles, hollandaise, cognac, fennel, Pernod and tarragon; and the noteworthy 2010 Carruades de Lafite, Paulliac to accompany Aspen Ridge prime strip and foie gras with port, yams, Brussels sprouts and sage.
