Burgundy Barrel Tasting & Six Course Dinner at Nicholas

Burgundy Barrel Tasting & Six Course Dinner at Nicholas

On Thursday, February Restaurant Nicholas will host a Burgundy Barrel Tasting & Six Course Dinner.   

I'm thrilled to have Sebastian Cathiard and Peter Wasserman join me for a 6-Course Menu featuring some incredible Burgundy wines. Last year, I was lucky enough to meet the Cathiard family and when Sebastian offered to come to New Jersey and share his wines...I jumped at the chance. Cathiard wines are so rare and expensive, I only order it by the bottle (not the case).  Then came along Peter Wasserman (one of the world's most respected Burgundy importers), who offered to  attend and bring along some "treats" for us to try. Throw in a barrel tasting of the 2013 vintages and this adds up to an unforgettable evening. If you love Burgundy wine, you do not want to miss it. - Nicholas
