Chidaine Polaner

A Day With Fantastic Polaner Selections!

Posted on

Join us on this Saturday, for a fantastic (and of course complimentary) afternoon with John Shanley of Polaner Selections. As spring approaches, we switch gears a bit and we will blast your senses with some truly amazing wines from the Loire Valley, Burgundy and Beaujolais. For those who are hard-core Loire Valley aficionados, the name Francois Chidaine may be familiar. Francois is a young Vigneron that produces truly world class wines, that are pure and reflect the amazing terroir of his vineyards. We are talking Grand Cru quality wines here and they deserve to be discovered and treasured. They are wonderfully giving, fresh and exuberant when young, but they age so incredibly well and they should be, without a doubt, included in any well stocked wine cellar. 

From Burgundy, we will be tasting the amazing new releases from Givry producer Domaine Joblot. The wines fell slightly out of favor in years past, as the style was a bit atypical for Burgundy, with too much extraction and oak. Joblot is now back to making great Givry and in a more restrained, “Burgundian” way. The 2014s are fantastic! Don’t miss this opportunity to taste the full line up. 

And what better time to enjoy some fabulous Cru Beaujolais? These are the wines that will turn you into a believer. Beaujolais is on the rise and no longer suffers as Burgundy’s poo cousin. Wine lovers are discovering how wonderful and cellar worthy the amazing crus can be. 

We will taste wines from Michel Guignier, Julien and Antoine Sunier and Dutraive. 

And, as always, a couple of surprises will be in store as well…book the date!

Don’t Miss it!!

As always, the wines will be complemented by these offering from our partners in taste, Plum Plums Cheese and Fine Foods of Pound Ridge.
