Châteauneuf-du-Pape: the 2000 Vintage Revisited

August 2, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Twin Cities Wine Education is proud to present a special night of very special wines
Châteauneuf-du-Pape: the 2000 Vintage Revisited
As a card-carrying Rhoneophile, I get giddy when it comes to Southern Rhone gems with a touch of age. Add to that a list of some of my favorite producers and a stunning vintage that has proven to make lush but strudy wines, and you know we’re in for quite a night.
Join us for an evening of Southern Rhone education. We’ll start with tasting some good but basic Cotes du Rhone while learning about the history of the region and Châteauneuf-du-Pape in particular.
Then we’ll move into the big show. We have six wines from a range of top level producers to enjoy and discuss, all from the outstanding 2000 vintage, all in perfect condition, and all with a story to tell.
2000 P. Lesec “Rubis” Châteauneuf-du-Pape
2000 Charbonniere Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape
2000 Lucien et Andre Brunel “Les Cailloux” Châteauneuf-du-Pape
2000 Usseglio “Mon Aieul” Châteauneuf-du-Pape (97 points Parker)
2000 Vieux Telegraph “La Crau” Châteauneuf-du-Pape
and the one I seriously can’t wait for: 2000 La Vielle Julienne Châteauneuf-du-Pape
This will be a very special evening indeed. Seating is extremely limited.
