Events around the Salon des vins d’importation privée are thick on the ground this year. From both a food and wine standpoint, one of the most interesting will be a winemakers’ dinner – six courses with wine pairings – held at Nora Gray at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and featuring four stars from oenopole‘s stellar portfolio:  Matassa‘s Tom Lubbe (Roussillon), Domaine du Possible‘s Loic Roure (Roussillon), Domaine de la Cadette‘s Valentin Montanet (Burgundy) and Remi Dufaitre (Beaujolais). Here – maybe en exclusivité – is the menu:

Foccacia toast, house-made mascarpone, marinated capelins and Provençal olives

Vin de France 2014, Petillant Naturel Rosé, Herbe Tendre, Domaine du Possible

Razor clam and mussel salad

Bourgogne-Vézelay Blanc 2013, La Châtelaine, Domaine de la Cadette

Braised pork belly, charred Brussels sprouts, spicy honey

Côtes du Roussillon Blanc 2014, Cours Toujours, Domaine du Possible
