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

Parsley pappardelle with wild mushrooms

Côte de Brouilly 2014, Laurence et Rémi Dufaitre

Braised lamb shoulder, roasted rosemary potatoes and cassis

Vin de France 2014, Matassa Rouge, Domaine de la Matassa

Lemon-spruce tip sorbet and hazelnut biscotti

Marc d’Alsace, Riesling, Domaine Gérard Schueller et fils

Price is $125 per person before taxes and tip. To reserve, call 514 419-6672.

COS and company @ Nora Gray

leave a comment »

Among the myriad events taking place this week in the wake of Les Turbulents, one that stands out is the winemaker’s dinner with Giusto Occhipinti from COS to be held at Nora Gray on Thursday, April 16, at 7 p.m.

The six-course meal, including appetizer and dessert, will feature seafood, pasta and braised and grilled meat dishes, all tailored to an impressive series of wines: Champagne Jacques Lassaigne to start, then COS’s Rami, Frappato, Nero di Lupo, Cerasuolo di Vittoria and Maldafrica, with La Stoppa‘s delightful sparkling Malvasia accompanying dessert.

If rumours are true, the all-inclusive price is a more-than-reasonable $125 a head, though you might want to confirm that when making your reservation.
