Alain Gousse, head sommelier of our Albert 1er gastronomic restaurant will be delighted to share with you his passion for wine.
He proposes a monthly meeting of one or several wine makers, in which they share their know-how and allow you to discover their best wines through a tasting.
The morning wine tasting session is followed by a gastronomic lunch in the Albert 1er restaurant with the elaboration of a special menu in accordance with the winemaker’s wines, who will take pleasure in joining you at the table.
Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th February 2015
Benoit ENTE - Puligny-Montrachet
“Born in 1968, I take over my grandfather’s 5 hectare wine estate in 1990 with my aunt. For 7 years until our parting, we sell our entire harvest to a wine merchant. In 1998, with 2 1/3 hectares, I start my first vinifications. In 2002, I sell 100% in bottles. After staying at 3 hectares until 2013, the vineyard has now an acreage of 5,7 hectares and counts seven different appellations on the communes of Puligny Montrachet and Chassagne Montrachet.”
