The Oregon chapter of the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, Sous-Commanderie de Portland held its first event on November 29 at Park Kitchen in downtown Portland. Chapter member Scott
Wright of Scott Paul Wines presented “A Graduate Course: Burgundy 501.” We tasted four flights of White and Red Burgundy from Chablis and the Cote d’Or. The presentation was superb and the food and wines presented, as well as the wines brought by the members, were delicious (the ’07 Bonneau de Martray Corton Charlemagne was magnificent…thanks Scott!).
I look forward to our next meeting, perhaps with a White Burgundy focus in the Spring.
P.S Thanks very much to David Beck of Crawford Beck Vineyard for the picture.
