The Grand Tasting
“Best of the Best: Grand Cru” Grand Tasting
What Makes a Grand Cru?
Grand Cru wines are the best of the best! The term “Grand Cru” means great growth and has historic significance in France. Grand Cru wines can age for decades and sell for exorbitant prices on the auction market. Want to know what makes these wines the best and find out whether Grand Cru quality exists outside of France? This limited seating tasting will explore classic Grand Crus (think Latour), their modern-day contemporaries (Vega Sicilia, Marchesi), and answer all of your Grant Cru questions. Join Master Sommelier Matthew Citriglia in a deep dive of Grand Crus to discover what it takes to make an iconic wine of historic significance.
The Grand Tasting Experience includes a Champagne reception, 3 flights of Grand Cru wines, and Chef’s Table menu pairings from our Executive Chef Robert Ciborowski.
