with Sigfried Pic, Maison Louis Jadot Export Director
Where: Lysses House Hotel, 51 High Street, Fareham, PO16 7BQ
When: 7pm Prompt Start, Wednesday 27th March 2019
Sigfried Pic is the Export Director for the historic and world-famous Maison Louis Jadot. Some years ago Sigfried offered to do a wine tasting for us when he was next visiting the UK. It didn’t quite happen then but we have finally managed to pin him down this time and Sigfried will be hosting a Louis Jadot Burgundy Wine Tasting & Dinner for us on 27th March.
The evening will begin with a brief, general introduction to Maison Louis Jadot and their wines. This will be followed by a pre-dinner wine tasting of five red Burgundies from the 2011 vintage. At 8 years on from vintage, this is now an ideal time to check in on these and see how the 2011 vintage has developed in general. Dinner follows and consists of 4 courses each with a matched Burgundy (1 Beaujolais and a Burgundy for the main course!).
All the wines will be served in Riedel Glassware.

A big thank you to Sigfried Pic from Maison Louis Jadot, James Wilson from Hatch Mansfield and all the staff from Lysses House Hotel for making our Burgundy wine tasting and dinner run so smoothly. I think all of the wines were showing superbly and everybody seemed to be enjoying themselves! Here are a few photos from the evening.
